Training horses comes with its share of difficulties. There is an endless list of hidden secrets, and farfetched theories that normal people wouldn’t even want to grasp if they could. Yet, I try continuously to conquer those difficulties to the point where I am caught in this purgatory between thinking like a normal person and thinking like a horse.
The challenge with being a horse trainer and being a normal civilian is that I want to take short cuts with everything I do in order to be proficient as possible. But, in taking short cuts that means I’m not paying attention to every factor of my training. I will miss something. I will end up creating more problems by my need for human efficiency.

Rapid population growth, disappearance of plant and animal species, and air and water pollution were combining to bring mounting pressure on the environment.
