The application of the two statements below play a significant part in my personal life & the preparation of my horses.

Jon Walker (Christian Writer)

“The man of integrity walks securely, but he who takes crooked paths will be found out”.  (Proverbs 10:9 NIV)

People with integrity live by fairness, even when fairness puts them at a disadvantage or causes them significant difficulty. They fight fair even when those around them do not.

People of integrity consider their word their bond, allowing their 'yes' to mean yes and their 'no' to mean no.

People of integrity are authentic and transparent; they act the same, no matter who is present.

People of integrity are straightforward in their conduct. They don’t hide what they are doing, or say one thing and do another. 

They are people “in whose spirit is no deceit"  (Psalm 32.2 NIV).

People with integrity explain the facts in an even-handed manner; they don’t try to present things in a way that makes them look better at the expense of another. They are respectful, helpful, and gracious to everyone and anyone.

People of integrity focus on :  

'whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, anything at all that is excellent or praiseworthy' (Phil 4:8 NIV)".

Eric Hought (Experienced Horseman)

 "The rider must place his personal success on hold and elevate the performance of the horse to the fore front.   It is all about the success of the horse, not the rider.

 The 'job' of the rider is to learn as much as possible about how the horse learns and as many techniques possible to manage the horse to his highest level of achievement.

 It is the rider's responsibility to see that the horse's self-confidence grows to the point that the horse thinks he is a tiger, YET totally under control."
