"The part that has meant the most to the horse and me is the communication between us. This is the part where I really had to devote a lot of thought. I have watched horses when they are loose by themselves or loose in a group; gentle raised or wild range raised, their naturalness will show. And by studying their actions and reactions I have been helped to understand how to present myself in such a way that the horses will respond to what I may ask of them. This I believe is true nature.
This is something I have had to develop in myself, for myself, by myself. The True Unity and Willing Communication between the horse and me is not something that can be handed to someone, it has to be learned, it has to come from the inside of a person and inside of the horse." - TD
"I try to feel what the horse is feeling and operate from where the horse is." - TD
Tom has been referred to as the "horse's lawyer". He gives the horse credit for his knowledge of a horse's feelings and problems.

"I was born May 11, 1910, number six of eight kids. Family, Horses and Cattle became an important part of my early life. The last 89 years have been good to me, and good for me. In looking back through all these many years, I have experienced a great life. Looking for the good in people and animals has helped me get a better understanding of life in general.
