When I started this process I thought, ‘Welp, I’m going to train a colt.’ I said it so casually; so nonchalant with little understanding of what it actually…
Sometimes it takes a moment to appreciate that even on the bad days, we are living someone’s dream. Things haven’t gone as planned. I ran into some minor…
Instead of doubting myself, I’m taking this as an opportunity to learn from someone more experienced and grow as a horseman and trainer instead. Even the greats were a little green in the beginning.

Don’t let yourself become complacent in your training, always strive to be better and keep learning.
Training is a funny thing, a constant balancing act of keeping the broad result in mind and not sweating the small stuff yet also taking your horse’s progress one day, one ride, one session at a time.
Bringing a colt back for the first time after a winter hiatus can go exactly how you expect it to…or not.
Many times, getting help from someone who actually knows what they’re doing is just what you need to go from plunking around to progressing forward with a young horse.
