After many years & much trying, & a long hiatus, I believe I have found my "place": where I can learn,finally, about horse behavior,how to be around a horse,how to LEARN about a horse instead of just getting on. I could write pages of my journey, but suffice to say: after a bad experience & a long road, here I can do what I need to do. "overcoming fear" is a big part, the other (huge part) is learning about horses. Am looking forward to shoveling poo, as a volunteer, just to be in Olsen's environment. Last, but hardly least, Janice Olsen is working w/me for the necessary $$ part, just so I can be there,& learn. Very comfortable atmosphere. One time w/her,& I knew she "saw" me, & understood. This is all good.
