I love to run. It is my favorite thing. I like to swim too. Maybe that is my favorite thing. No, on second thought, I love playing with Jane and Rhett. They are my favorite things. Hummm I'm not sure... now I'm confused. I'm pretty good at concentrating on one thing at a time. But I get distracted on occasion. Just for today I'm going to pick … Read more »

Less is more. It's true. When you're first learning something new, you usually try too hard. We all do that. Once we have the skills we find we can achieve the same thing with little effort.

Rhett and I have a lot of fun playing together. He's very good at throwing the ball. He can throw FAR! Sometimes I bring the ball back, and sometimes I like to keep it. Rhett doesn't like it when I won't return the ball. He chases me and makes loud noises. It is great fun! Jane asked Rhett one day why I don't always bring back the ball. Rhett … Read more »

QUESTIONS Jane talks a lot about high quality questions. To understand what that means, you have to be able to know the difference between a low quality question and a high quality question. A low quality question can only give you a low quality answer and tends to create more of what you DON'T want. A low quality question usually starts with … Read more »

One of the many reasons deep breathing helps you to relax is that it allows you to move from a Beta state to Alpha state. When I refer to Beta and Alpha states, I’m talking about the oscillations of your brain waves. When you’re in a Beta state, the oscillations are approximately 14-14 cycles per second. In an Alpha state, the oscillations of … Read more »

To put your horse on the bit, use what I call the “connecting aids”. The “connecting aids” are a combination of three ingredients that you’ll maintain for about three seconds—the length of time it takes you to inhale and exhale: Those three ingredients are the: .

I've decided I want to learn to dance. I saw a dancing dog on YouTube, and realized I could do that too. Jane is working hard at improving her dance skills, so when I see her practicing in the living room, I join her. I've begged her to let me go to the dance studio with her, but so far she's always gone without me. I think her dance instructor is … Read more »

What inspires you? A beautiful painting? Lovely music? Gorgeous scenery? A perfectly performed dressage test? I'm inspired by physical comforts. I enjoy being brushed, eating carrots, and napping in deep, soft shavings. I'm also inspired by a job well done. Jane lets me know with her tone of voice and stroke down my long neck when I've performed … Read more »

I caught a ball midair today, right over the pond! When I went into the water, I held tight onto the ball. I got water up my nose, but I didn't let go! Rhett was proud of me. He laughed when I snorted the pond water out my nose. I took the ball back to him and then shook hard, getting him really wet. Then it was my turn to laugh. Jane heard the … Read more »
