I know you already know what I am about to say but, I am compelled to say it to you again. Please feel free to use this as a testimonial as is or edited should you have need or desire.
Please accept our heartfelt appreciation for your consideration and allowing our youngest son, Jasper, to participate in the advanced training week this past week at Ray of Light Farm as a spectator.
As I mentioned to you on Thursday you have changed his life through the access that Jasper now has to an entirely new way of horsemanship in general and specifically in working with foals in a way that promotes only a gentle caring approach.
Based on his accumulation and absorption of what was presented and his powerful assimilation and recall of the experience and expression of his agreement with the practices learned, I can only assume that this will affect him through out his life with people as well as animals.
His existing intense desire to be around horses, now accompanied by his amazingly expanded knowledge as a result of your program experiences, teachings, methods, other caring participants and expert speakers, has moved him in ways apparent and intrinsically that you will most certainly give witness to in the near future in other courses offered. He has told us that he is most interested in being one of your apprentices and trainers in the future.
As a family you have moved us. Not only in your generosity in allowing him in and accepting 2/3rds of the published rate based on our request, but also in the caring and knowing approach that you extended to him as a qualified and capable person and learner.
Your expectation in your program in general is that people play full out and take in what is being presented and whether you know it or not, even as a spectator, Jasper followed that directive and played as if he was one of your main private students.
Your seeing and knowing, innately, that this would be a fit for him, us, you and the group was wise and accurate. I do hope that you will bear witness to the knowledge and growth that your compassion and presence has offered him throughout his life.
All the very best, until our next meeting Bill Paglia – Scheff
