Greatest Teachers

The greatest teachers in my life have always been horses.  

This is Setta Lu

She taught me to love, trust, and try.
She taught me how to listen to and communicate with horses.
She made me become a horseman and a trainer. 

She was the first horse I ever trained.
She was always willing to check my attitude when I needed it the most.
She had a slow soft trot to die for, and was the only reason I managed to survive High School.   

We trail rode, showed, worked cattle, rode at the beach, and did everything else in between.   

She was severely visually impaired and later blind 7 of the 8 years we were together.  
She passed away at the age of 15.  

How have horses influenced your life?
