Nothing wrong with insightful quotes, but maybe all on one thread, and with more detail on your experience would lead to a productive discussion. Just making a quote does little to promote useful discussion, just like the many memes that we fleetingly see on facebook.

Sure I could get things done by getting a bigger bit or more gadgets or more people involved but I knew there had to be a better way so I began a journey determined to find something better to offer my horse. What I found changed my life, along the way I would hear or read a phrase or quote that had great meaning to me and would write them down. These quotes of wisdom are what I considered to be a "gift" to me and I keep them close as they help In so many ways. So the question of what I'm "after"? Only hope!, I'm not here to tell anyone what to do, who to follow, drop names or sell anything. My hope would be if just one person would get some meaning out of these quotes "gifts" and maybe cause them to stop and think about their relationship with the horse then inturn offer the horse a better deal. I don't appreciate negative comments anymore than the next guy so if this thread seems like hogwash to you please move on. Enjoy your day.
OK - So that now makes it easier to understand - sharing ideas that have helped us with our horses and riding is how we all learn - the very best horsemen/women will always tell you that they never stop learning
No one owns a thread here so negative comments are unavoidable, as long as they aren't rude or intolerant you just have to live with them or ignore them
