year is my amazement at thelevel of awareness Harry haswhen working with a horse.It’s inspiring and movang.One day during this year’sclinic at Mendin’ Fences inTennessee, I was working myhorse on the line and genganxious to ride and startworking on his crookedness. Ithought he seemed ready toget on but there were lilespots on the line that Harrysaw. He took the rope fromme and started working withHeyson. At rst I rememberthinking –
does Harry just know this horse and so he’sgoing to elicit the worry and deal with it but NO Harry saw these lile signs that I wasmissing over and over. Theworry was there
– Harry sawit and I missed it. He beganto address them unl hestarted to relax and let go.Once again, I was amazed athow much I didn’t see unlHarry pointed it out!

agedwoman who is more con-cerned about injuries thanwhen I was a kid, I’m con-stantly aware of the obstaclethat presents. But sll, I’vedecided to count myself luckyfor all the years I may havewasted working with trainerssending me down the wrongpath. I was lucky enough tobe introduced to Harry aboutseven years ago from myfriend Ava Dans, and now Iknow I’m on the one and onlytrue path. It’s not easy as an-yone who works with Harrywill probably agree. Seemsso simple … and yet it’s socomplex. One thing that re-mains constant from year to
