Oh the tears I have cried over the years with difficult horses, sobbing and praying I could have great horse.
Now I am further along my journey I look back and am so thankful for those difficult horses that entered my life.
Without them I would not be the rider I am today.
It takes quite a while to understand that a great horse can only be great with a great rider.
If you put a novice rider on a great horse it will only perform at a novice level.
If you put a great rider on a novice horse it will perform at its greatest ability.
If you are feeling stuck, irritated, frustrated and everything else like that it’s ok, just promise me you won’t give up.
Take a deep breath and take a look at things from a different perspective. Rather than focus on everything that is going wrong, focus on the amazing things that you are learning and how many more skills you will gain as a rider from your horse.
Every single horse teaches me something and I am so thankful to each and every one of them for making me the rider I am today 🙏🏻
