I am just hoping to hear cool stories... pick me up. Started post because I was thinking about my own journey and heartaches, learning, and lack of newer people to connect with in my area and my discipline. Luckily I managed to find a new awesome people in rare circumstances. Some times even strangers have brightened my day or a gal that looked at a horse I had for sale filled a void fast friend.. didn't biy my horse lol but gave me something more priceless.
Any how here goes: As a beginner rider yourself, trainer/starter of new to horses people or problem horses (no don't recommend green for new but some start with a young one), or at smaller level how do you encourage others and promote the growth our love of horses? As intermediate trainer? As a trainer at any level? As a trainer of a specific sport to new or been in industry a while people?
What has helped you personally grow and keep interest to? What neat fun stories do you have about what others did to promote your growth, interest, or get you through a problem area?
