I'm a lifelong learner. If you ever think you know it all, you definitely don't. We all meet those types in daily life.
I was talking with a friend recently about the number of people that I've met with Minis that have that attitude. Most are "lifers" with horses. You know the - I've had horses since I can walk, blah blah blah. Surprisingly three of "those" types have been the worst when I've had to reclaim horses. Grossly overweight, founder, not trimmed correctly, not trimmed at all, body scores of 1-3, basically in various states of "OMG WTF did you do to these animals?"
So, anytime I think I know it all, I try to learn something from every encounter, person, event or class as I know I don't know it all!
I'm not a sucker for fads, but will listen and hopefully garner some information from anyone that is teaching me about a new product, idea or trying to sell me something.
That was a nice lead up to online education. We're fortunate now to be able to access educational opportunities locally and across the world. Here's one such place.....
My Horse University or MHU has some great educational webcasts that are FREE! There is a great monthly newsletter you can sign up for as well and of course their educational courses.
Other Miniature online education and training (some paid/some free) are:
Star Point Horsemanship with Lana Grieve (Facebook/Youtube free info too)
Miniature Horsemanship with Kendra Gale (has a free newsletter too)
