We’re off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz. Because, because, because because, because….because of the wonderful things he does! Remember that from the movie, “The Wizard of Oz”? Dorothy and her friends were off to find the wizard that would help them solve all of their problems and give them all of the answers to all of their questions about life.
Do you ever feel like you’re on that same quest? Following the yellow brick road from one clinic to another, from one clinician to another, trying to find the answers to all of your questions about horses? That’s not a bad thing. Getting information is important. Getting the right information is more important. Getting the right information that fits you and your horse is the most important! Sometimes it takes the right person saying the right thing at the right time for it to “click”.
Our experience was spending lots of time and lots of money being exposed to lots of ideas about horses and horsemanship. We listened, we learned, we experimented, we failed, we succeeded. We didn’t feel like we wanted someone to “give” us the answers. We wanted to use the information we gathered in our own setting and see what worked for us. We stayed with the things that fit our personalities and our abilities. We found that what really mattered to our horses wasn’t the techniques we used but, the feeling that came from the inside of us to the inside of our horse. As we got more sure our horses got better.
As this clinic season begins and you search for the right setting for you and your horse to get exposed to new ideas or refine some old ideas, pay special attention to what it is you want for you and your horse. Whether it’s a safe and relaxing trail ride or running a cow down the fence, the goals have to be yours. When you’re comfortable and confident your horse will be too!
Of course, we’d love to have the opportunity to work with you and your horse! Helping people find answers that fit them and their horse is one of the pure joys in our lives. We may not be the wizard you’re looking for but, we’ll always be honest about what we share with you and kind in the way we present it.
