I was captured by your training sessions with Amigo. I stayed up until 2 am just reading all your posts. Good job and thank you for all the great work you did with Amigo. Ive trained a few mustangs also and while it is challenging, its also very rewarding and there is nothing to compare to that bond and trust that you can have with a mustang. God Bless you and your family. Amy Allen Wa. State

I really enjoyed watching and reading about your experience with Amigo. I found your site as I was searching the internet about mustangs. I was really disapointed that I found the site immediately after the Mustang Makeover. I was searching through the trainers involved and saw "Big Un'" and loved him at first sight, and loved him more and more as I, RESPECTFULLY, watched Ted work with him and read the commentary from Karen. I am a proud adopter of a mustang, who I dearly love and Amigo reminded me so much of my Gus. What a personality! Gus is my first experience with training, and I was growing frustrated with my inexperience to train him to accept the bit (HE does not like the bit), and I have had the best luck with reining while in a bosal or rope halter. I am a little less frustrated now- "If it ain't broke...". Watching and reading about your family and Amigo was wonderful! Thankyou so much for the experience. My husband and boys are seriously considering moving back to Oklahoma and will hopefully look you up when we do! Gus and I could both benefit from meeting you in person! Thankyou again- I really enjoyed sharing the experience with you through your updates! ( I hope the person who took Amigo home knows what a great job you did and how great a horse he took home!!!) Sincerely- Sandy

Hi! My friend I came over with the Meekers that one day and watched you work with Big'un. [The "english" girls.] I was truly impressed and amazed. Both of us were! Your patience and understanding is really inspiring. I also finally got around to looking up your website. I love it! Keep up the amazing work and God Bless!

Hi Guys I was happy to see my old friend, Dukes Diablo, i had the pleasure of breaking him in,starting him on a cow and then helping my dad train him, he was an extremely good pupil, lots of feel, cowy and would have made a great cow horse over is australia. We also rode volt a blue and many other Diablos, i worked for the Burst Ranch at Beggs in the early 80's, Marandy Case was one of the ranch mares and lovely old gal, Another of your mares goes back to Buster Harrietts great little mare Harriotts Poco, i also rode a number of her progeny- all great ponies. Nice place you have there, i have enjoyed the visit to your site, and really glad to see Duke again its been a long time.

Saw the piece on TV. Karen, you looked great on camera! The Horse Whisperer looked pretty good, too. Let's pray that God and Ted stay on the same wavelength throughout this training session -- keeping him safe.

Hello, Nolands! I want to say how much we appreciate you, all of you. Ted takes care of my 4 horses....4 adopted mustangs and a broodmare soon to be great saddle horse for me. We, my husband Phil, and I want the world to know what a talented horse whisperer is quietly living there in Beggs, Ok. And what a wonderful family the Nolands are, Ted, Karen and the boys, who have made the Rockin'N possible. When my latest adopted wild horse was outgrowing his halter and would not let me take it off, wow, you should have seen Ted. I'd say in an hour or less he was posing for pictures with my little colt with the halter taken off! Ted was as gentle with the colt and patient as I could have ever wished. I won't have any heavy handedness with my horses, but I don't have to worry....Ted doesn't need a heavy hand to communicate with horses. Noland family....you have touched our hearts. This past summer, my friend, Beth, and I had so much fun helping buck hay at the Rockin' N; watching Ian drive and Phillip giving him instructions; watching Karen smile at their boys in the late afternoon light . I got into work this morning and I noticed a little quote I keep by my phone. It's an excerpt from a Robert Frost poem...."Two paths diverged in a wood , and I - I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference." That is what the Nolands did when they settled in Beggs to raise horses and their boys. They took a path less travelled moving back to a small town, and from there, they have provided us, their clients and friends, with gentle care for our beloved horses. Your clients, friends and admirers, Phil and Liza B. and the "herd".

What a wonderful site and great visit! After viewing your videos, the "No Horses Allowed" gave me a big laugh. In coming years, you may wish that you hadn't shown this horse how to climb stairs, as he seems like a real smart fella! <G>
