1. Throughout this project I overcame many challenges but the main one was definitely training my previously wild lease horse Murphy. He is known to be very stubborn because of past abuse after he was rounded up as a foal in Pemberton. I fallen off many times due to bucking and him misbehaving so that was definitely the hardest challenge, of course among training the other rescue horses.
2. This project changed the way I think about training horses because before I was under the mentality that you need to ride them to gentle them but Murphy taught me that you don’t some days it’s better to just spend time with your horse instead of riding them when they don’t want to.
3. This impacted my future decisions because now I know I definitely want to train rescue horses as a career possibly in the future.
4. Locally this project impacted the rescue ranch I work for because I helped train a lot of their horses to be adopted which was helpful I imagine, also through this I hope I somewhat change peoples minds on rescue horses.
