Oh! LOL - now that makes more sense :P
I love to ride in Clnics - I find clincs are far more benefitial than weekly lessons to be honest. When someone who is a "Phenom" in the equestrian world, I have to go and either ride under them when they come into my neck of the woods, or audit.
I love to learn, and when you hear quotes like that from "The Greats" they not only burrow down into your noggin', but they also help that light bulb turn on that magically floats above your head, and make you go "OOOOOOOH!"
I love those moments :)
I'll tell you what though, the 2 things I took home from that clinic, were the 2 quotes he said to my group.
One being the one already posted, but the other was "Good Riders blame themselves, Poor Riders, blame their horse"
Because we have to fix ourselves first, before we can correct our horses. If we aren't correct when we ride, how can our horses be?
