I have been involved with horses for the past ten years. My interests are varied, ranging from showing Quarter Horses, to trail riding Tennessee Walking Horses. I am a member of the Tennessee Horse Council, AQHA, PWHAT, which promotes lite-shod Tennessee Walking Horses and was the Sponsor Coordinator for the Tennessee Volunteer Horse Fair in 2000. My husband Chris, is a Certified Master Farrier, and our sixteen-year old daughter, Ashley, shows Thoroughbreds in the Hunter/Jumper "A" circuit division, finishing 5th in the nation last year.
I became interested in John's methods about seven years ago when I bought a horse that I experienced many problems with. I guess I should have known better than to buy a horse that the previous owners tied to the bumper of their pickup truck to lead, but I liked her and she came home with me. It didn't take long for me to figure out that the horse owned me, not the other way around! I took this horse to two trainers, only to have the horse return home unchanged. My friends told me to sell the horse, and buy something "better", but I was determined by this time to "fix" my horse! I took her to a three-day, hands-on clinic, where John was successful in helping me learn how to change Leia's behavior. I attended a few more of John's symposiums, along with other trainer's clinics, and decided that John's methods worked best for me. I was accepted into John's elite Certification Program in 2000, and successfully completed the seven month course in Parachute, Colorado in 2001.
