"Take the very best care of the horses in your stable. Travel with your horse, make friends and be sure to bring new people to the industry. Take a win when you can, they don’t always last, be a good sportsman and treat those around you with respect. Keep your ears and eyes open. There is always something to learn, may it be what to do or what not to do." on
