O.k. guys let me axe ya a question. I would like to start a horse program for Soldiers returning from their service. The program will be a start up program for the horses and for the Soldiers. Neither will have been introduced to each other of any kind. Meaning the horses will be rank or mistreated horses and the Soldiers would be new to any sort of equine species. I'd plan on a 6 month program where Soldiers interested could be involved in starting Colts or Mustangs or abused horses and gradually getting them to saddle to trail or arena. After that we'd allow the horses to move on to Professional finishers or approved horse consumers. I'm a product of this and I believe it would benefit dissasociated soldiers who need a good friend (that being the horses). I don't care what branch, I don't care the age or rank. But I'd like to share what worked for me. appreciate any input fellas/gals. gardener in a couple of days I'm out to my new Cowpoke job. so if I don't immediately respond don't get pissed. I'll touch bases as I can get service. adios gg.
