In these posts I will share my experiences working with horses. Without a doubt, my greatest teachers have been my horses. When learning to relate to horses the most important thing to do is to get out and interact with them. Know from the beginning that you will make mistakes and that this is OK as long as you learn from them. I truly believe that my biggest mistakes have provided me with my greatest opportunities to learn and grow as a horse handler.
My writings are also inspired by the wisdom of natural horsemen and women whom I have come to respect through their offerings. I have read a lot of books and watched a lot of videos and find that I relate most to the teachings of Jonathon Field, Cherry Hill, Warwick Schiller, Mark Rashid, Buck Brannaman, and Ray Hunt. In my opinion each of these horse training experts have a great philosophy when it comes to working with horses. One that is based on kindness and mutual trust and respect.
I hope you enjoy sharing my thoughts. I welcome your questions and comments.
I grew up, like many people I suspect, with a very romantic notion of horses. My dreams were filled with images of me galloping across the plains on my trusty stallion. The Lone Ranger was my hero.

Part of my recovery was learning to deal with stress as a serving military member. My wife told me about Brendon’s Equine Therapy. I […]
