Thanks for providing us with an unforgettable vacation. The leadership training, understanding of natural horsemanship, horses and humans will stick with us forever.

That was just the beginning. We will never be able to explain in depth for other to comprehend what we experienced.

It is one of those things hyou need to go through on your own and once you have you go " AHH, now I understand what they meant."

It is a lot like Love you can talk about it but to be in Love is totally different. This was like falling in love.

You took us to places that we know nobody else ever would. We appreciate your trust in us with your horses and your belief in us that we could do it.

Climbing mountains, going up hill, down hill, through streams, running through the pond, walking, trotting, cantering, bush whacking and on and on and on.
Regards, Tom and Helen
Rich instills confidence in you the way he explains things and double checks everything. From the fit of the stirrups, saddle, and how it all lines up on the horse without you on the horse and then again when you are on the horse.

When he told me to follow what he did, I knew the horse could do it and I would follow through.

My confidence grew day by day. On day four on the morning when Rich told Helen and I to go to the upper and lower trail separately, I was anxious and a little nervous but not scared.

Just me and Pozo singing songs. That is what a vacation should be, fun, enjoyable, relaxing and memorable.
Mary, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helpingme to fulfill a lifetime dream from when I was a little girl. I am blessed to have a husand who loves me and did this for me.

The greatest git was to see Tom smile and truly enjoy himnself and to watch this vacation unfold to be for both ofus. The sstoires that you shared made us laugh, however, Tom had you both beat on make me laugh until I cried, aka duct tape. We have included a picture of "Tom's essential horseback riding gear."

Rich, Thank you for finding my camera, retrieving my hat twice, finding Tom's glasses and for the additional trick riding for our enjoyment. Wow, who would have ever guessed that I no headaches!!

We can't wait till we can come again. Tom thinks he will be ready for Zippy next year so get him ready.

Regards, Helen
