Allison & I discussing a lesson
I'm going to be honest. I have a problem. It is something many of you can probably relate to, or not, depending on where you want to go with your horse and what type of riding goals and dreams you have set for yourself. Here it is. I have huge expectations of my horse and myself. That is good, but I think I get too serious at times and am not stopping to appreciate what we've accomplished, and the joy that is right there between my legs (oohhh that sounded a bit...off :) and at the end of my reins. I am IMMENSELY impressed with how far Jackson and I have come in just one year, but sometimes instead of appreciating that, I find it not enough, and wanting more, more, more.
Here is a quote that I love from Mark Rashid's book, Horses Never Lie.
And I must give thanks and kudos to Bre over at G is for Greta for making me my fantastic new banner! Check out her blog, it's wonderful! And thanks again, Bre!
