There are many specialty schools and programs that provide specific skills such as farrier training, horse medicine, horse massage and other particular areas of expertise. These programs can form advanced education for a horse trainer wanting to understand as much about the animal as possible. Additionally, membership in such organizations as the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association, Professional Racking Horse Trainers Association or the National Trainers Federation provide horse trainers numerous opportunities to meet and interact with other trainers, affording informal opportunities to learn different approaches and skills.
In these two great men, one will find two prototypes of what a great leader should be. One was a pacifist and one was a warrior, but both shared the common principle of freedom for his people. In Chief Joseph , we find a man of peace, an eloquent speaker, a man who could use words and reason to accomplish his goals. However, in the dawn of a violent age these peaceful traits were often taken advantage of. Such was the case time and again as the white man broke promise after promise. Still, Chief Joseph would not compromise his beliefs and died still hoping that one day all men could live equally . In Crazy Horse, we find a man who never believed in such promises. As a result he spent most of his life fighting against the inevitable change that was thrust uninvited upon himself and his people. Crazy Horse had no love or respect for the white man, a trait that made him a feared adversary and one that the . government was surely glad to be rid of when they murdered him.
