When I see a horse I see a piece of art or at least the raw materials. As a trainer it is my job to see beyond the surface and look for the possibilities. Then slowly, over years of training, it is my job to uncover and make visible to others what I have seen.
That is also my job as a parent in a way. When we influence others it can either be in a positive way that uncovers the beauty that we see or it can be in a destructive way that destroys the potential.
