I was reading I Will Jump Sweet Jumps blog (one of my fav blogs & role models) yesterday and she had posted the BEST blog hop, I simply couldn't wait to join!
..horse riding is so hard. Like you know those hard days where you're lying on the floor so depressed and haven't been able to pick up your left canter lead on any horse for days and for some reason your left hand won't stop clamping on the reins and refuses to soften and do what it's told and you feel like you'll never be good again. But you are good and there have definitely been times when you were like omg I am such a gangster at this. And I wanna see those pictures.I think we could all use a stroll through memory lane to dig up those pictures that remind you that, yes, you are a badass!!
I know I needed it.
Horse riding IS hard. Owning horses IS hard. Disappointment never ends. Dreams are constantly shattered. Pocketbooks are regularly emptied. But its so much more than the negative and I think we all lose track of that when we get caught up in the disappointment. I know I sure do!
It was fun to find older pictures that represented when I felt like a badass! FUCK YEAH, I am a good rider! I am good at this! Riding is fun, and rewarding, and exciting!
