The good news is you have already started doing the first lesson just by being here and looking for new training ideas…. Horse Training Revolution Lesson #1

Develop The “Take Action” Attitude of A Champion


Take a few minutes and watch this quick clip taken from a, in it we get Horse Training encouragement from Multiple World Champion Trainer Cleve Wells to get started with what you have, stay in the game dispite your circumstances, begin early enough to have time to practice, practice, practice to build confidence and perfect your skills.

What this clip doesn’t show is the whole story of perseverence and taking action, this same year Cleve had his thumb in a cast, a shoulder operated on, and a broken foot, not to mention set backs from the year before. But none of that stopped him from taking action and moving forward.

The day his cast came off he went back to work….

The day Cleve’s cast came off, he went right back to riding.

and continued on with a very successful year.

What you should take from away Lesson #1:

Successful training requires a mindset of action.

Overcome any obstacles and just get started.

Be determined…

  • to learn what you need to learn
  • then take action & do what you learned
  • with a work ethic that won’t quit
  • and integrity that builds long term success.

As Shane Dowdy says “I want to win the class, not the warm up.”

I want to share with you one of my favorite quotes of all time from Master Horseman and Showman, Bob Avila, taken from his book with Juli Thorson, Win With Bob Avila, Beyond Training: Mentoring From A World Champion Horseman. I think about this quote a lot…

“I think we’ve all known people who talk big about having horse goals,
and yet always have an excuse for not going forward.
They put more energy into coming up with justifications
than they do sticking to the concept of “just do it”
That’s the big reason why such people are seldom successful past a certain point.
Their true motivation isn’t to succeed it’s to avoid failure by playing it safe.
They back down to their comfort zone the minute the going gets tough.

To me, that’s the ultimate self sabotage, because the going always gets tough at some point when you’re dealing with horses and human emotions.
lack of money,
stiffer competition,
family problems,
depleted confidence
-name a setback,
and chances are you’ll come up against it something.
There’s a lot of truth to the phrase,

“No guts, no glory”

Here’s a few more quotes from masters of success….

“All right Mister, let me tell you what winning means? You’re willing to go longer, work harder, give more than anyone else.”
Vince Lombardi

“Do not wait; the time will never be “just right”. Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.”
Napoleon Hill

“History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.”
Bertie C. Forbes

“The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win.”
Roger Bannister

“The one thing all famous authors, world-class athletes, business tycoons, singers, actors, and celebrated achievers in any field have in common is that they all began their journeys when they were none of these things.”
Mike Dooley

Get started....Take Action
