"A staff of about six experts

E. originated and directed a short
course on horses and other farm
stock which was so outstanding and
timely that there has been imme
diately a great demand for more
like it all over the country.
In his monthly "Horses, Horses,
Horses" column in the November
issue of the Morgan Horse, the
author reported that he had
learned there was no such
thing as a "beginner" among
horsemen. No matter how
"green," the would-be horseman
considers himself an expert.
Dr. E. made this discovery only
this year when he scheduled a six-
day Horse Science School for be
ginners, followed by a four-day
Advanced Horse Science School
for the more experienced. The be
ginners were offended to be called
“beginners,” while the experienced

teur might enroll in the advanced

owners of Tennessee Walking Horses.

In a recent article Dr. Ensmin
ger pointed out that he had made
a mistake recently in setting up
two (2) classes at one horse school.
One was for beginners and one
was for the experienced horseman.
He found out that there are no
beginners in the horse business!
I am sure that many of you have
been in the Walking Horse busi
ness all your lives and just might
feel that there is nothing new that
you can learn about horses. This
