Re: [RC] [RC] Man O' War - Carla Richardson

Riding horses, and being around animals of any kind, has been my "therapy" all my life.  At a young age I found that I liked hanging out in the barn much more than being indoors.  I agree with you, Bruce.  I wish more kids today could grow up being outdoors, working and playing with animals, instead of with a computer or video game.

 I agree, Truman. We clearly live in the "sound bite" generation, with escalating cases of ADD and ADHD,  shorter attention spans and the need for constant entertainment and distraction like texting, video games, and movies.  Our television newscasts can cover an entire story in less than a minute, and a few sentences. I see some of this lack of attention span  in myself, at times. That's one of the reasons that I think endurance riding is therapeutic. It forces us to be away from TV, computers, emails and constant dialog for long periods of time. It's been said that all man's troubles can be boiled down to the fact that we aren't able to sit quietly in a room for fifteen minutes alone with our thoughts. Some truth in that, I think.   Dr Q
