About myself....I am a retired Police Officer. I've been retired for 27 years now, and I owned a part time cabinet shop and went full time in cabinet work after retiring. I just tried to retire again and sold my shop. Needless to say I find myself after 46 years still doing cabinet work in a small 3 man shop.
I joined the UNI 10 months ago and am loving every minute I spend online, watching each lesson, sometimes over and over again. I have watched every lesson the course has and I check every morning to see if Monty has posted another new one. For some reason I can't get enough. But repetition to me is nothing but success.
I own 5 horses, 2 are Registered Quarter horses and 3 are all registered Tennessee Walkers. I bought Dually halters for all 5 and try to work every horse at least twice a week with it. My Quarter horses are both rescue horses. Both geldings, one I bought when he was 2 years old. He was on his way to the dog food plant. The people I got him from was trying to make a Barrell racer with him but came up almost lame and had a bad knee so I bought him. The other Quarter horse is older, maybe between 15 or 20 years old. I found him tied to a tree in the owners yard with no shelter or grass to eat and had been in that situation for some time. I knocked on their door and after talking with me for several minutes, they graciously gave him to me. I just couldn't stand seeing him there every day tied to a tree like a dog.
My Walkers, I have owned for a couple years. One is a big black gelding, I call Midnight, and the other two are sisters and are called Tobiano's I believe according to the Walker community. I think they just don't like to say the word Paints. I call them Apollo and Gemini.
I have found since joining the Uni that all 5 have different personalities. COMPLETELY!!! I am learning quickly that each of them need different types of training to be the kind of horse that I want and would put my 10 year old granddaughter on their backs. Each of them need special attention and different types of care also.
As I work with each of them I will let you know my progress and their success. Or I think in my case, OUR SUCCESS. Also as I learn more about Monty's methods, and put them to good use, I will keep you posted on their progress.
Thanks for listening.
