One of the many reasons that life with horses never becomes tiresome is there’s always so much more to learn.
I’ve had very little instruction or formal training as a rider, with my learning mostly coming from observation and reading. However, I recently had the opportunity to participate in a week of horsemanship at McGinnis Meadows Ranch in Montana, where their emphasis is on Buck Brannaman horsemanship. It was such a fantastic experience, to be able to focus solely on my own riding for several days, with incredibly well-trained horses, and in a style that I respect and that makes sense…and one that offers a never ending scope for improvement! I am hoping I can retain much of what I learned, and build on that until my next opportunity to head back to McGinnis Meadows:) The benefits of this experience in Montana have far outweighed the effort and expense it took to get there from the Kimberley!
