Sometimes I just cannot access all that is hidden in my brain. I am sure I know to the answer to this question but do you think I can recall lit? Of course, not! I am weary of trying to remember it so here I am asking my internet friends for a little assistance. Otherwise I am sure it will be sometime in the middle of the night when this answer finally pops into my brain.
So here goes. I know there is something that can be applied to a the bottom of the hooves to toughen them up, but what is it? Seems my boy, Legs, has always been ridden in shoes and he is currently shoeless. I finally feel like I am capable of riding, even if only for a little while, but Legs is a bit tenderfooted. Toughening is definitely in order. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I promise I will resume the posts on the Parelli clinic. The last few days I've been plagued with pain and sitting in this chair is torture. I guess I'm going to have to resume writing on my phone to finish up the Parelli story since it's forming ok in my head.
In the meantime, I came across a couple of posts I'd written about things I'd learned about choosing trainers. Since part of my Parelli experience was very much along the vein of training methods that are best for the horse, I thought I'd share those things I'd learned to help identify if a trainer might or might not be someone capable of that kind of training. Unfortunately for the horse, there don't seem to be too many of those available where I live and these posts are the fruit of my experiences with some of them.

A Little Lesson I Seem to Miss
Any other ideas on things you might have to see in trainer's behavior that might be useful tools in determining is a trainer is really worthy of your trust would be greatly appreciated. Seems like I am always learning the hard way........
