Fort Collins, Colo.
It seems that I need to offer an apology to Christy Landwehr, CEO of the Certified Horsemanship Association. I have been using drawings to help write my articles. The reason I have used these drawings and information is because they are very good and explain what I am trying to say much faster and better than I can. I tried to create my own drawings but the time involved had been longer than I have had the time to sit down and draw. I did give credit in a number of articles in the past but seem to have forgotten to do so lately.
Now I don’t want to get The Fence Post in trouble, nor do I want to get in trouble myself, so please let me explain how this all happened. These are a teaching tool and I feel that the articles are teaching new horse students and experienced ones who, like myself, have forgotten many things about horses learned in the past.
I am, by nature, a teacher and have been one for a long time. I began teaching public school in 1956 and did so for about 15 years. In May of 1988, I was certified by Camp
Horsemanship Association as an Elementary English and Advanced Western instructor by Susan E. Harris and Gary Marble while attending West Texas A & M University in Canyon, Texas. At this time, I was given the complete Horsemanship manual published by Camp Horsemanship Assn. of Lawrence, Mich., and was told that I could use it in my teaching.
As I said earlier, I felt that my articles were a teaching tool to reach those I could not normally reach. In addition, age has caught up with me and though I taught horsemanship many summers at Rodeo Bible Camps, I now am unable to travel the distances once easily covered and feel that I can best reach students with my articles.
Christy Landwehr, CEO of Certified Horsemanship Association advised in her letter May 5, 2008, that I and the Fence Post may continue to use the information and drawings, but must give credit to CHA for them. I agree and apologize for the error, which I take full responsibility for. I did not intend to, in any way, take credit for this work.
After all is said and done, I promise to never make the same mistake again.
