Hello Donald

Thanks for thinking of us here on an icy night. We have had a fine mist coming down that has frozen into an imperceptible and life threatening glaze of ice. Non detectable until you are sliding down the walk. The new puppy fell down three times and with all the exuberance and bounce of youth, thought it a marvelous joke! We survived the cold wind chills and the horses did well with cover from the wind and plenty to eat. Hope you are your kids are doing okay too. Be careful out there!

Hello Donald,
Hope that things have settled down a bit at your place. Cold night here with a terrific northwest wind. I guess it is December and it is to be expected. We had such a beautiful Fall here that I had hoped it would last forever. LOL. The minis are fat and sassy and ready for winter and are turned out with the big horses. They all get along great and my sisters little Major is the boss of their little herd of four. He has a lot of moxie for such a little guy! Hope your holiday was great!

Hello Donald,
Thanks for your nice comment to my little great nephew Dakotah. He is learning about clicker training here at Trinity Ridge Farm He is a very special little boy and shows much promise and talent with the horses. I hleped him create his page when he was here a few weeks ago. Isn't the shot of him and my little mini in the blog I just posted great? A very athletic pair. I couldn't jump like that even when I WAS his age!

I hope you will do the blog you mentioned below. If you post on another website will you still let me know. I have found all your instruction to be very detailed and clear unlike some training books that talk in circles and tell you nothing. Thanks for the good ride from today!

Glad to hear it. Got to keep that nose pointed in the direction of the turn. That's the secret of lightness, meaning both gentle easy but quick response, and real collection. If the nose is turned the shoulder starts coming up. It's when the nose points out, and the body wants to counter bend the should drops and that leg bores into the ground ... ouch.

I'm thinking about blogging a piece on the simplicity (which no one believes is true) of dressage and it's application for all styles of riding. Lyons does a form of it.

Hello Donald,
Just wanted to let you know that I worked on my turn on the forehand with the instruction information you gave. I have to say those are some of the nicest turns I believe my horse and I have done together. Was also able to make much nicer rounder circles without feeling she was falling in on the inside of the circle. Hope you will post more for me to work on!

Very much enjoying your blogs and learning a lot. I believe the best training methods are a combination of all the teachers we've had and our own experiences and a little intuition as well. Thanks for more inspiration!

Thanks for your response and the link to the new pictures. Your girls are such lovely creatures! Sorry to hear about your trouble but I am glad to hear things are getting better now. It has been a tough winter here but we are doing fine and the horses and minis are doing fine. Looking forward to Spring and getting the garden in!

Hello Donald,
Hoping you and all your girls are doing well over the winter. Missing your stories and blogs here on the website. Take care and check in to say hello if you get a chance.

Hello Donald, Hope you are having a wonderful summer and enjoying all your girls. Bet our royal princess is growing and changing everyday. How is the training going with Altea?

Great to hear from you Donald. Loved the photos and hearing about all of you. How exciting to have students again. I would be in line for lessons if I was close enough. Especially if you would tell stories afterwards like the ones you wrote here. I truly hope you will find the time to write them all down. I am not kidding when I tell you how much I looked forward to reading your posts. I should get over to AND more often but seem to run out of time. Take care and have a wonderful weekend. Say hello to Princess Bonnie and Altea and your lovely wife!

Hello Donald,

Glad to hear all if fine and Bonnie growing and "lavading" in true Princess fashion. What a joy to see her every day!

Hope all is well with you and your "girls" both horse and human. I miss hearing about Bonnie and Altea adventures and hope you are busy with the advent of Spring. We are waiting for the rains to subside and get into the garden. Horses are muddy and shedding and it takes and hour to get them ready to ride but such is Spring and an hour of grooming time and hanging out with our "kids" is time well spent. Take care Donald and post a note when you can. Miss ya!
