James Cooler is the trainer of my 3-1/2 year old Friesian sport horse gelding and the manager at the barn where I keep both my horses. I am also taking lessons from him in ground work and riding my Quarter Horse gelding.
Last weekend I attended the Colt Starting competition at Chatham Hill in Virginia. James Cooler was one of three natural horsemanship trainers to be selected to participate in this year's competion.
Mary of "Galloping Mind" documented the event quite well, I thought, so for Part I & for Part II click on the links. Tom Seay of "America on Horseback" was host and Ken McNabb of RFD-TV show "Discovering the Horseman Within" was lead judge.
And a "just because" photo of Sebastian about a month ago...
