July 2018 Letter From Julie

View of he mountains through Annie's ears

Dear Friends,

I’m home for my summer break—seven wonderful weeks at home! No airports, no business travel, until my fall clinic season begins in late August.

I’m celebrating by working in my postage-stamp-sized flower garden, plus spending some personal time with my horses—reconnecting with them after a busy four months of travel. (More on my new colt, Pepper, later this month in my horse report!)

Of course, my extended time at home doesn’t mean I don’t work—I just shift gears and do different stuff. It enables me to work on exciting new projects and begin planning for clinics and expos for next year. And as I’ve done for the past dozen years, we’ll be shooting the TV show here at my ranch—which takes about a week out of my month.

Still, if I play my cards right, I hope to also find time to spend at the lake—fishing, swimming and chillaxin’ on the boat.

Julie Goodnight

    • Hi Lennie,
      Thank you for reaching out and I am happy to help as much as possible. I offer many free resources on this site just search by key words to bring up thousands of instructional articles I have written over the years. A great resource I have put together for starting horses may be found here:
