Horses for Courses

Heather Green

Hugh McLeod points to a blog written by horse trainer Darren Wetherill about working with horses. The posts on Horse Bliss are simple and straightforward, but very informative. I think big and small companies that are interested in blogging can take a look at this blog and learn a few things.

For instance, what's interesting to me is that in this blog Wetherill gives away the secrets of his trade in bits and pieces. And yet, reading this makes me wish I lived in Colorado, where his operation is based. I am learning a lot from his blog, but reading the blog makes me wish I could learn about horse handling first hand from Wetherill and his partner Mary Risavi.

I love, love this blog and I'm a bit scared of horses. I agree this is a great example of a smart, fun way to share information that you are passionate about. The pictures are informative, the writing personal yet concise. This one is a keeper. Thanks Heather for sharing it.

As a lifelong horsewoman, I'm a fan of this blog as well.

Darren Wetherill wrote a thought-provoking post recently about tapping into the horse's natural curiosity to create confidence in the horse. Isn't that what we bloggers are doing? Aren't most of us blogging about the things about which we're naturally curious and therefore passionate? Having a platform to be expressive about our personal store of knowledge can create a lot of confidence in any domain expert. Whether you're blogging from a cottage in England, a ranch in the Rockies, or in the wilderness of northern New Mexico, which is where I'm writing from.

I agree with Hugh McLeod that we live in very exciting times. Many of us have expertise to share. Most of us certainly have passions. And the personal global microbrand enables us to do it.

I just found the Horse Bliss blog and am enjoying it very much. It's is hard to find good horse blogs but this is a good one. I agree with his natural horsemanship training techniques and will be adding him as a Horse Approved trainer on my site. http://www.horseapproved.com

I to have been involve with using natural horsemanship.I have studied and thru the process have develop my own brand of this technique.

There is no 1 cookie cutter method to train horses.Horses are all unique like people and it should be noted that it take many tools to build a foundations.

Researhing & Bending others methods has brought to me those techniques that used by me.

I offer classes in natural horsemanship the San Fernando Valley.
