"I wanted to say thank you for all you did for Topper and Bella. Topper was PERFECT in our lesson today. He actually switched leads without and argument or protest. Bella was great too. No ear pinning or tail swishing. she was much more comfortable."
Hey... I just wanted to say thanks for helping Valerius. He is feeling much better today. He was perfectly sound in his lesson and couldn't keep his feet on the ground when turned out in his paddock."
Thanks for coming out to work on Nugget. He is moving much better today and that lump in his girth area is no longer there. Thanks again.
"Gina, what is in that Tape?! Whatever you did worked! That mare went out trained like a beast on the racetrack. I need you to come back and work on a few more!!"

"Holy smokes! Radar was AMAZING today in his lesson. In fact he was feeling so good that we had to leave the ring to go workout his giggles outside. He was collecting, bending, engaging his hind end and finally picked up his left lead without bucking. THANK YOU!"
