It was so good to talk to you and doing so has really helped me feel a lot better about life in general and not just about what we discussed.

I went on the Intelligent Horsemanship course and had we not chatted would probably not have gone. The course was excellent and I learnt a lot. Also my confidence grew some more.

Yesterday I took Juan out for his first outing in the box – he’s been quite sticky about loading – just to a friend’s yard 4 miles away to go for a hack. He was really well-behaved considering he’s not been anywhere since last August when he came to me. I would prefer it if he didn’t trample about and paw the floor quite so much but he’ll get better.

I think the biggest change in my attitude is losing the automatic “what if” reaction to any challenge, a really big result from our two recent chats so thank you again.
