Always remember, that the most important thing is about the relationship between you and your horse. Many people who think they know everything in the horse world, don't. True horsemen and women realize that you can never know everything, even with their own horses who they may have had their whole lives. Always remember that every horse is different.
A little quote from one of my favorite speeches:
Be careful whose advice you buy,
But be patient with those who supply it.
Advice is a form of nostalgia;
Dispensing it is a way
Of fishing the past from the disposal,
Wiping it off,
Painting over the ugly parts
And recycling it for more than it's worth.
Whatever barn you go to, you will always run into negative people, so more so than others. You just have to find the positive ones. You will probably find that there are other people at your barn that are in the same situation you are in, just cover it up well.
