Let's be perfectly frank and honest with ourselves regarding our relationship with any horse. When you finish your ride and you get down from the saddle, it isn't the people who watched you ride, the officials at some event or exhibition who have any right to judge you. The real thing that matters, the true judge of your ability as a horseman is standing next to you. It is the horse who will tell you by his expression, his body and the look in his eye if you helped him. If you showed him how he can be better and if you have a partner in this dance. JSR

I was thrilled to hear that John Saint Ryan had completed his book, and sat comfortably in these early winter days to read it and absorb more of his involvement with, and gentle sympathy and love for horses.  It was also an opportunity to participate in some of his invaluable connection to Tom Dorrance whose influence I missed completely.  I have benefitted enormously with the work that John did with the horses that I was able to send to him for training, they were always the better for their work with him!  Even the most complicated of them were saved for the future by his understanding of their problems.  I am thankful, on behalf of horses in general, and handlers in particular for John’s enlightening understanding of the relationship between horse and human.

"I just reviewed Pat's new dvd "THE ART OF THE BRIDLE HORSE”. 

Pat has done a great job explaining this art. His experience of 40 years of breaking and training bridle horses is now a gift to those who want to learn. Enjoy.  Sincerely, Ray Ordway

Born in 1924 Ray Ordway followed the California vaquero traditions of his father Ira, uncles and older brothers working long, hard days on open ranch land, handling cattle, branding, colt starting and absorbing knowledge from old-time masters of the California Spanish style. Today Ray Ordway is known as “Dean of Vaqueros.” 

"Pat shares good, practical knowledge about a vanishing art form." Jack Bassett, owner of D-M Western Store, Reno NV
