Cornbread Thinks: All Trainer’s Wives Go To Heaven

bankston jimmyThere will be a special place in Heaven for trainers’ wives. It will be padded and have a punching bag. There will be a really nice barn where nothing ever breaks or gets hurt or sick. It will be warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and airy and light. It will be full of good horses owned by customers who pay their bills on time and know all the rules of cutting – written and unwritten. All the barn help will be graduates of the Martha Stewart School of Housekeeping who speak the King’s English. The lopers and assistant trainers will stay happy and never quit at the worst possible time.

Laura & Tate Bennett with Rios Jewel
We want to see what a great trainer can bring out of great horses. Great trainers teach them to be athletes first. They teach them how to position themselves to not only block any attempt to go to the herd, but give a cow the impression that he is in two places at once, already landing to head the next turn, and telling the cow, “Don't even think about it.”
