Van Hargis - Rookies and Old Guys pt 1

The Horseman's Corner is an original production of Howard Hale Broadcasting on the air since 1994 with over 7,000 episodes with people involved in the world of horses. I'm Howard Sun Brian and we welcome you to the Horseman's Corner. Hey, did you know that you could find top trainers, podcasters, equine authors, clinicians, all on our website? It's not just a website filled with the greatest radio interviews of all time with horse people. No, it's a lot more than that. It's a search engine, a great place to find authors, clinicians, speakers, and the best information about horsemanship. Now here's Texas clinician, Van Hargis, with his program, The Ranch Road. Good morning everybody. This is Van Hargis with Van Hargis Horsemanship and welcome to The Ranch Road. As always, it's that little short drive we take each day from the house over to the ranch and doing so. We just try to share little tidbits with you. Today, what I'm going to share with you is something that everybody may be aware of, but it's pretty well factually true across several different industries. Did you know that the two people who get hurt the most in their profession are rookies and the most experienced? In other words, the rookies and the old guys, they are the ones that get hurt the most. And why do you think that is? Well, the rookies get hurt because they just simply don't have enough experience. They don't know what to do and what to look for when it comes to risk management. Therefore, their lack of experience kind of leads them into making decisions that may not be conducive to them not getting hurt. So as a result, those rookie guys just get hurt because they just don't know all the things to do or as many things to do to prevent accidents and things like that from happening. We see it all the time in the horse industry. We see young trainers or young folks getting bucked off of horses and getting hurt and getting their horses in precarious situations, but they're resilient. They bounce back. They don't suffer those injuries like us old folks, right? Join us again tomorrow for part two on why the old guys get hurt. That's going to do it for today's program. Thanks again for listening and may God bless. I'm Brian Hale.
