    A beautiful and true sentiment. Have been fascinated with your training of Jac, but
    do not understand horse training as well as I do doggie obedience class 🙂 Why in
    the world ruin (?) a gentle training for days, months, whatever, only to be seein
    using those absolutely ugly, nasty, huge star burst SPURS? Sorry, don’t seem to
    understand. I rode English as a teenager till I got to college and don’t recall ever
    putting any on, even in a “schooling show,” Would appreciate a simple answer.
    Thank you.

      The simple answer is that if you ask Roxy, the horse, if she was ruined by me using spurs the answer is she was not. I have a two page article that I wrote somewhere but that wouldn’t be a simple answer.

      I went ahead and posted the full article on spurs if you would also like to read that.

    Inspirational words and it rang true in those times. I remember the Roosevelt years very well. I can only hope they are true now, but with the greed and dishonesty that prevails in many areas of this world today, it’s a struggle. God bless everyone who tries.
    I love your blog and horses. Thank you for the fine training films about Jac .

    And Martha Washington, who would be 282 if she had lived, opined that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition. Bill Swart
