"...I don't want to mess it up..."
It's a common statement I hear all the time. The colt is coming along nicely and the client is excited to have the horse home. They are excited about the training, excited about how far the horse has come, excited about what they are going to do. And then they get that look on their face, the one that's filled with doubt. Everything is good and they don't want to mess it up.
The foundation on the three-month horses are solid. The owner can take that foundation and build upon it any way they choose. It's all good - there is no "messing it up".
