Age

“The more I see, the less I know for sure.” ― John Lennon Life is interesting that way. As with training horses, in life the more you learn the less you find out you knew back when you thought you knew a lot. I can’t wait until I am old. Just think of watching people [...]

The Strangest Secret

Earl Nightingale recorded an audio back in 1950 called, “The Strangest Secret." Here are a couple quotes from the audio. “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal,” and “The opposite of courage is not coward, it is conformity.” I like to set goals for myself, but I usually don’t think about the word “ideal." [...]

All Bits Should Be Outlawed!

Here's a video that explains the title.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7IEKy_EbiM I had this video and an article posted to my Facebook and was asked what I think. I really don’t know what to think. Outlawing bits would be like outlawing guns. The problem isn’t the tool. It's the use of the tool. And I'm not trying to [...]

Legacy

I have read books that discuss the legacy mindset. Meaning that a person who lives life as to create a legacy will be a humanitarian as well as try to create wealth for his family generations to come. At first I looked at this as being egotistical, but after some thought I really liked the [...]

Think Big

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway. - Kent M. Keith I was playing catch today with my son and he said that something was impossible. I told him that we shouldn’t use the word impossible. [...]

Control

I am a control freak. Pam tells me all the time to look at the big picture and not focus on the small stuff. As I get older I think I am getting better at this. When we train horses we Teach to the Test, or teach for the desired competition we want to attend. [...]

Miracles

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ― Albert Einstein What are miracles? I think it’s a miracle that I write stuff on the computer, add it to a website and a couple thousand people read [...]

Inspire

I had someone ask me what inspires me. Why I write blogs, work on web based projects and share Nerium? Instead of just train horses like most horse trainers do. The truth is I feel it makes me a better person doing these things. It makes me think about right and wrong and how close [...]

Horse Problems

I received a message from someone who works at a breeding farm asking what to do with a baby who is less than an angel. The baby became head shy because it had a halter on too long. The reason it had its halter on too long was it was kicking at anyone who would [...]

Confidence

My dad sent me an article from a handgun magazine about how to shoot better. The article had a quote: “Your goal should not be to never miss, but to give yourself every opportunity to hit your target.” I thought about this relating to training and showing horses as well as to life. If we [...]
