Blog 13: An exciting time to be an autistic horse whisperer!
Hi everybody, Spirit and I are slipping and sliding in the lovely muddy wet weather and we both appear to be enjoying ourselves regardless!
Recently I went to Monty Roberts demonstration at Hartpury College in Gloucester which was great fun despite an accident in which one of his helpers got run over by a horse and had to be rescued by the ambulance people.
Luckily she escaped with minor injuries and a few broken ribs. Considering that they work with some of the most dangerous horses on the planet I would say that one accident in more than 20 years of world tours is an incredible safety record.
Monty was also kind enough to record a video for me in which he praised my book and described it as incredible! It's amazing when a man you've looked up to you ever since you got interested in Horsemanship describes the book you wrote as incredible and I must say to this day I still get quite emotional thinking about his praise of me...
Mostly at the moment Spirit and I are concentrating on dealing with the bad weather and arranging small-scale demonstrations in our local area not to mention recruiting additional volunteers to help with demonstrations.
I have Spirit enjoying her Simple System feeds with the addition of linseed to help her coat to cope with the additional rain we keep getting.
I hope soon that we will be able to get some talks and book signings underway in my local area again soon.
All the best, Charlie
