    Learn to trust paul. He knows what he's doing more then I do and I need to just sit back and relax on him. I also learned that sometimes just sitting out in the field with him grazing and me reading a book are some of the best times with him.

    As you go, so goes your horse! That's true and I think it's fun to experiment with that and see how my horses follows me of their own free will.

    Act like you have five minutes and it will take all day - Act like you have all day and it will take five minutes.

    You can't acheive softness by being soft all the time.

    Another one I was told by my MG coach - Never put the horse in a position where it has to make a decision.

    Even if you don't know what you're doing, you have to convince the horse that you do.

    People will not change, or take advice by force. They have to want to accept it... Especially horse people.

    A "dead broke" or beginners horse is still a horse and is subject to it's own bad days and occasional mean-nesses. Never expect the horse to always act absolutely perfectly.

    The most important thing I've learned from horses is that you never stop learning!
