|Sarah and Bear
On the eve of bringing my beautiful boy home, I find myself overwhelmed with emotion. The past 2 years have been filled with heartache as we have struggled to overcome Bear's many soundness issues and the significant mental problems that have resulted from a lifetime of poorly diagnosed and ineffectively treated pain.
Once his physical problems were finally resolved, you took my fragile, frightened horse and, with your amazing patience, kindness and compassion, helped him to find his confidence in himself again.
It has been a privilege to watch his amazing transformation over the past two and a half weeks, an experience I will never forget. Thanks to you, he is once again the relaxed, confident, happy horse that I fell in love with.
How can I ever thank you? In addition to what you have done for Bear, you have been so empathetic and given me so much support in so many ways. You never gave up on him or me. You have helped me overcome my fear and insecurities about riding him again. You shared my deep sorrow when it looked like we were going to have to retire him (at 5 years old) and my boundless joy when you helped him overcome his many hurdles and take that first confident step into his new future.
I cannot begin to express how grateful I am.
You are a truly inspiring and amazing person.
Sincerely and eternally gratefully,
|Bec and Saxon
It's Rebecca Maxwell here, the one who you have done wonders to help with Saxon.
I wanted to share a couple of pictures that I thought you might would have liked to see, showing you how far Saxon and I have both come. It may not be the safest thing to do, but what he was letting me do while I was playing around with him in the paddock nearly brought tears to my eyes. His trust for me has come so far and I'm very grateful for EVERYTHING you have done to help. We will definitely be coming to more clinics of yours and keep you up to date on our progress.
You we're the first person I thought of to share the experience I had today with Saxon. A month ago I would never have trusted or thought I would be standing up on his back like this. You have been blessed with a true gift Carlos and I'm very grateful that we contacted you to help not only myself but Saxon too.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Bec and Saxon
