When I retired from teaching, I had a teenage daughter at home and I was looking for something we could do together. There were horses at a nearby children's camp, and the camp staff needed someone to train those horses so they could be used for a riding program at the camp. I knew nothing about training horses, but my daughter was interested, so we began working together as volunteers training the horses. God provided the people and resources to help me and my daughter learn how to train horses and live to tell about it. As I learned the techniques and qualities important for a horse to become an enjoyable companion, I saw that many of those same qualities are important in my own life as I seek to walk peaceably with the Lord. When a horse pays attention to direction and has a willing and compliant spirit it is very easy for the rider to guide and direct the horse. As we walk with the Lord, if we pay attention to His word and have a willing and compliant spirit, it is easy for God to guide and direct us. I became director of horsemanship at the camp and served there for 6 years, then served another 14 years at a different facility. God has always been faithful to provide the guidance and direction I have needed and it is my prayer that I can share with others the horse training tips and the life lessons I have learned.
