Whose voices am I listening to? Life lessons learned from horses.

Whose voices are you listening to? Speaking to a group of students last month about the influence of our media choices,I used a Life Lesson Learned from Horses. horse show I judged –a speed event horse, so distracted in the show ring by the calls of his stable mates that he crashed into the first barrel on course! Are the voices coming from our screens, song lyrics, celebrities and social media, steering us off-course?

Horse show judges’ PD Day

At a dressage judging clinic, Caledon Equestrian Park on Saturday. Professional development day. Wearing a few different hats as a horse show judge, it’s SO interesting for me to compare the disciplines. The scoring systems, the traditions, the styles – even the background music! Something to be learned and appreciated from every horse show ring in equestrian sport.
