We Are Flying Solo

Thought For The Day

I am cleaning out my old cell phone in preparation for switching to a new one, as the buttons are about to stop working (especially the one with the "e" on it!). I found these timeless words from God, aka Jim Wofford, stored in a note from our clinic last year. I stashed them in my phone to remind myself often to keep my horse training priorities straight:

Any system which disturbs the natural tranquility of the horse is flawed.

Need I say more? Words to ponder every day...


  1. Very good thought!

  2. So interesting. Seems like that would be a long, long list...

  3. That what I thought Beth! In context, he was referring to the difference between training a horse with thoughtfulness and patience vs. the methods we all see which result in forcing and fighting and an upset/scared/overfaced/tense horse.

  4. I love it! I came to that realization about 9 months ago, and it's made all the difference in my relationship with Mosco. Thanks for sharing :)
