Quote of the Day - by Pat Parelli

People keep asking me about my blog address and what it means. It's named after a man named Pat Parelli who is my horse training mentor. He is the founder of a horse/human training program called Parelli Natural Horsemanship - it's about learning to think, feel, act and play more like a horse. It's been a huge blessing in my life in so many ways.

And one of my other favorite things is great quotes. I love profound quotes by famous people, I collect them. One of my all time favorites is by Abraham Lincoln: "Whatever you are, be a good one." Which goes along with something my grandpa and hero, Howard Church used to always say: "Any job worth doing is worth doing well.

Anyway, Pat is full of great quotes and I've decided I'm going to post them periodically. So here's the quote of the day:

"What other people think of me is none of my business." - Pat Parelli

And here 's the man himself:
