Expectations – Oh How They Mess Things Up!

It happens to the best of us. It happens in all sorts of situations. It happens when we go and take a clinic. It happens after a hard day at work. On the evening lecture before my clinics I always ask the participants to introduce themselves so I can...

Such a Positive Year!

A big part of my dream for many years is finally realized. My farm’s boarders are now ALL clicker trainers. It is so cool to go out to the barn and hear clicks and see food delivered and horses praised. There is no tension in the barn, no negative ...
