Some people are horse lovers.

Are you a horse lover? Well, for myself, I can't say that I'm a horse lover but I really appreciate horses.

Horses are a great way to get around.

I like riding horses.

I like just looking at horses too.

They're beautiful animals and horses come in all shapes and sizes.

There's small horses and big horses.

There's the great big Clydesdale horses.

Although they're mostly for show today, they were a workhorse in the past and they were very large and powerful.

My mother used to do, um, work in the Canadian National Parks.

She used to patrol the trails and she'd take groups of horses out because the horses were carrying all their food for two weeks.

She said horses are very, very interesting animals and they have personalities.

I don't doubt that I've been around dogs quite a bit and I can see dogs have personalities.

So, horses, of course they do and I rode horses on a three day, uh, horse overnight, uh, packing camping trip.

They're, um, very interesting animals because they sort of like to run towards home as soon as they get close to getting home.

And So you really have to take on the horse and rider mentality.

Don't let the horse in control, let the rider be in control.

That's you.

And I think that's a good analogy for life.

You should be in control of your life, not your life.

Controlling you.

Horses are crazy and they're immature and they're smart and they're helpful if you ever get a chance, go for a horse ride because it's great.

And if you can try riding a horse bear back, although it's a little bit dangerous, it's fun and exciting."
