Shutterbug: Training Day

It's training school for me and Skully. We get to learn together. This is my first attempt to train a horse from birth. I grew up around my dad's race horses in Brazil and they came pre-trained. I used to exercise them on occasion. Back then I weighed only 90 pounds and at barely 5' 1" the other jockeys thought I had potential. My mom put a big stamp of "no way" on me becoming a jockey. She felt it was too dangerous. Damn, I could have put my shortness to use! Now it just comes in handy when climbing under fences.

  1. Sandy- Check out " the soul of a horse" by Joe Camp. I think you will enjoy it as you embark in your horse training. Have fun!

  3. Thanks Mariana - I will look for the book. I have to transition from the ass whisperer (as in donkey) to the horse whisperer so I need any help I can get. PS = saw a TV segment on horse massage therapy and thought of you! Happy Mom Day!

  4. If you need to do a research that can directly challenge the commonly known educational standards as well as propose new ideas you can use our writing service. We help students who have to complete one or more written tasks due to their young age lack practical experience in how to do a dissertation proposal for me on the given topic at their university or other establishment. My own study will surely have great impact on making me a graduate.
