Back from vacation!

     I've just returned from vacation, time well spent to rejuvenate, reenergize and take some time to just "be".  We all need to relax and it's amazing how much clearer everything becomes.
     I believe the same is true for horses.  We always treat our own horses the way we would like to be treated.  What do I mean by that?  Try to think and react like a horse, it really helps.  Don't anthropomorphize, just empathize.  Just like us, they need some time off from training and a sometimes tough show schedule.  Even a few days can allow them the mental rest they need to be eager to resume their jobs.  We always rest our horses a day or two before a long haul and of course they always get time off even after a short show that is near home.  The horses deserve this time off and will always perform better for it. 
     See you next week!  JD
