Remember to ALWAYS wear your helmet
HI KIDS !!!
This page is just for you!
In these pages you will learn
all sorts of cool things about horses and about my GrandPa's 'Less Is More'
Natural Horsemanship philosophy.
My Grandpa and Nanna are also
teaching me about learning how to be partners with dogs. I am learning about
natural dog handling too.
I am 7 years old and I have a 7/8ths
Arabian mare that I ride. She is my partner and her name is "Topaz".
I think she is the best horse in the
whole world. Yeah!!!
My GrandPa and my Nanna have been teaching
me to ride bareback and with no bits since I was 2 1/2 years old.
My Grandpa taught me that we can't
train or teach horses to do anything. They already know how to do everything
that a horse is supposed to do.
There are horses all over the world.
Each horse is different but they all speak the same language and thats what
makes it easier for us when we are around any horse.
Since each horse is different, and
we really can't train or teach them to do anything, then horses and humans
have to "learn together' how to get along and how to get certain things
done. Every time I need to learn how to do something new, my partner "Topaz"
and I learn how to do it together. She may already know how to do it, but
I don't, so we learn together how to trust each other, how to respect each
other and how to communicate with each other so we can be better partners.
"Topaz" looking over the
fence at me !!!
and "Topaz" on my 6th birthday. This is the day that Grandpa handed
me the lead rope and told me to go get my horse...as my birthday present, he
took me trail riding. It was the first time that I actually rode "Topaz"
all by myself on the trail instead of riding double with Grandpa or Nanna.
