Comment from a student
No, the thanks goes to you two for welcoming me into such a fascinating field of study. I have learned so much from the both of you. I only wish I could have done this earlier in my life. Now I am afraid it might be to late. I would not trade a minute of it for any thing. I am done with this portion of the degree, I will graduate in 2011 at the age of 58, I am bound and determined to walk across the stage to get my diploma. I have done a lot in my life but none has been as rewarding as taking these classes from you. I can see now why DSU is going to have the largest Equine enrollment they ever have. With the equine portion complete I feel like I am missing out on something, I want more and more, but the cards that have been dealt have not allowed for anything more than going to school. My dream of learning to ride and ride well has been put on hold for a long time, and again may be too late for me.
Thanks again, and I will stay in touch, you are very good people and that is so refreshing.
Your friend, Mike
Thank you so much Gene & Sandy! It means a lot coming from the both of you! Thank you for being such a great influence in my life and for offering the great opportunity to take your courses! I will keep in touch! And I'm sure I will be calling with questions :) Good luck with your future courses, training, and whatever else may come your way :)
Whitney
