Learn by Helping Others
I know a lot of people feel they learn more by working with a teacher one-on-one, and in some instances that’s true. But I think there is also a lot of value working in a group. That’s what horses do. They work as a herd. Whether you’re in a clinic situation or working on a ranch, there's a great deal of benefit in trying to help those around you. Maybe it’s stepping in to block a colt someone’s trying to catch, or it could be noticing what someone is trying to do with a cow and filling in where you can to help or just getting out of the way.

By taking in your surroundings, looking at the whole picture and being aware of what’s happening around you, you’ll not only be in a position to help someone else, you’ll also be better prepared to help yourself and your horse stay safe.  Don’t just do your own thing. That’s where people get into trouble, focusing on themselves and not the rest of the herd.  There’s just a lot of learning and experience to be gained by trying to be a productive part of a group. I think that’s important to keep in mind as we move into the clinic season.
