You Gonna Reap Just What You Sow

Are you satisfied with the values of this world? Then why are you teaching your children to conform to those values?

A child who learns and practices natural horsemanship will become more courageous, more generous, more  honest, and more compassionate.

Natural horsemanship makes good horses but it makes much better people. Take the step to make your child a better person.

Read a news piece the other day..hundreds of high school students in Denver walking out of school and literally walking for hours to the steps of the capitol building, where they gently and respectfully walked through a cordon of state troopers to take the steps of the capitol in protest of police excess..
I was literally in tears by the time I got done reading that. That. IS. America.
Obedience, conformity, cooperation, all necessary, all absolutely essential to the conduct of a succesful the proper place and the proper time.
We are all, each and every one of us, wealthy sons and daughters of wealthy mothers and fathers, even those if us who have no money to speak of, our wealth is derived from the endless hours of toil that our ancestors upon these shores expended in order to perform a more perfect order to find a better way.That way must be guarded, it must be progressed upon, carefully preserved for generations to come.
(See also: the planet.) These kids...scratch that..young adults stepped out of conformity, left the complacent groove in which they plod, walked out and drew a line..made a statement.
My heart is bursting with pride for them, for what they can become. They give me hope.
My children have each participated in demonstrations for Occupy Wall Street..they are taught to reject that which is inherently wrong. they are taught to be as strong as they can, and hopefully they will learn to not shoulder burdens which they cannot carry, but try and find a better way.
Our current Commander in Chief has been roundly beaten for his slogan,
"Yes We Can." Well...what is missing there is "WE." We can.
It never occurred to me that I could train a horse..much less be any good at it...Yes, now, I can, and I want to share as much of that as possible.
So, too, can might have to step out of comfortable boundaries to do whatever it is you pursue, but you can..we can, and we will. Teach them well, teach them to think for themselves, ours is not to live and die upon a treadmill, but to walk our miles as far as we dare to go. -Lloyd
