One lesson for each one of my horses.
Bought her out of a field, a 7 y/o unbroken MARE, If being a mare wasn’t going to be a nightmare enough.
You fall => You get up => You get on, and then you repeat as much as necessary.
I learned a lot about not falling from Zamour, but I’m not going to lie, it left me with some mental scars. Even if you don’t want to, after some time enough is enough and you start to not trust so much. Not because you don’t want to, but because you don’t want to get hurt anymore.
Capiton flipped the switch for me. 3 days was all I needed to start riding him, a 3 year old stallion. 3 days and I was on him trotting around. If that doesn’t make have trust and confidence I don’t know what will.
Just because it’s feeling great now, doesn’t mean it can’t get better. Always strive for better, and more. You’ll never know what’s on the other side of the rainbow if you don’t get walking there!
5. “Have fun!”
Always have fun doing whatever your doing, if you enjoy it you will eventually succeed.
