Re: Fw: Re: simipathy or butt kick

Kerry, you said exactly what I meant only better. We have all made mistakes.
Its learning from them that matters most! Glad it made you even more aware
of your horse at the Ride. I was a little harsh maybe but I have screwed up
to and it hurts to think of a horse hurting because we stupid humans weren't
'Tuned in' to some of the signals are horses are sending. But I would say to
Howard, try riding your horse instead of your nifty gauge.
