So I have been brainstorming what type of things to post….any suggestions? I love quotes so I put this together. Any other ideas?

Hi Stacy. My name is Paige and I live in Santa Fe, NM. I am a horse owner as well as a single, self employed 57 yr. old woman. I have been a hair stylist for 35 yrs. here is a quote I have retained from yrs. ago after a boyfriend lectured me while complaining about difficult customers: ” you are only as good as you can be for that day”. It stuck with me for all these yrs. and I think it’s true…with our work but also with our horses. We can’t be perfect every day..which lends to the “horses are so forgiving” quote. Thanks, Paige

I love anything that you post! I like to hear what you have been doing with your horses too!
“It’s what you learn after you figure you know it all that really matters in life” especially when it comes to horses and people! :0)
A friend of mine uses this quotation (unsure of author): “It’s what you learn After you know it all that counts.”
An old friend of mine said this one day, not sure if he made it up or was quoting someone, “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.”
I love quotes also, and horse stories. Little things that horses teach us that make a difference.
Stacy, my dad told me to try and think like the horse I was working..Now that hasn’t always worked, but, we both know our dad’s knew it all..lol.. Not a day go’s by there isn’t something I want to ask him..I have a double bred Boston Mac 2 yr. old. darn is she smart, and pretty. fast..You may want to take a look at her.
How about a preview of future clinics, where and when and how we can become involved. I’m Canadian who would really like to go to a clinic with you, particularly on reining, and possibly on the east coast. 😉
You could answer questions. 🙂
What’s the most important aspect (besides safety) for you when you’re working with your horses?
I know that for me as a beginner, I get very frustrated sometimes with both myself and my horse. When I do get frustrated, are there any good steps to take to help ease me out of that or should I just stop and find help then?
And because I’m a beginner, I also work with a number of different horses. I’m also well aware that I’ve got heavy hands and I’m not confident like others or that I may not be telling them what to do consistently. These horses aren’t mine and most of all, I get so worried that I’m going to ruin the horses by teaching them something I didn’t mean to teach them or hardening their mouth because I have beginner’s hands. How do I overcome that fear in me so that I can learn to the best of my ability instead of being terrified I’m going to scar the horse for life?
I have a thousand more where those came from 🙂
