As I did a Podcast interview with Maredith and Colton Woods on October 29th, the dogs gracefully stayed quiet for the 2 hr visit (Pic or it didn’t happen, right?!)
Their questions were well thought out and I was impressed, much like I was 3 years ago when I met them. They had asked me what keeps me “hungry” to go down the road and keep doing clinics – of which you can here my answers on the Podcast . I must say, I hung up the phone with a great peacefulness. It is so very heart warming to hear the excitement in their young voices, truly the start of their journey (they may disagree that it’s just starting ) and sharing with me their dreams, hopes and aspirations of “dabbling”. The respect they gave me, to listen to past experiences I’ve had, in a world that lacks humanity, humility and a drive for passion, these two “kids” are heroes – they are honoring tradition, living in the present and building a future of greatness. They thanked me for taking the time to visit….I believe I am more thankful and appreciative for the time with them – it gives me hope and drive to find more people like them across the country and share the commonality of the horse. Some of the things we talked about:
- Most prevalent issues seen at clinics across North America
- Earning the trust & friendship of your horse through the work you do together
- How everyone is born with Feel
- Developing our ability to be present with our horses
- Importance and impact of working from where the horse is at
- Advice to professionals looking to make their living in the horse industry
