Horses, Life, A Touch of Geek

Sam ears 3 trimmed

I was asked who I wanted to ride at this show. Who do I always want to ride? [Whither Now] Sam, of course. [Sultan’s Miracle Man, HOY Nomination]

Con
Be brave! Be fierce! There is no growth without challenge.

Pull my socks up. Ride all the horses the nice lady is kind enough to offer. No progress comes from puttering along in a rut. Every horse has something to teach.

Pro
I have enough trauma – real or imagined – at home.

Stepping Stone is my haven to remember why I like to ride. Simple rides increase confidence as well as competence. Riding horses that overwhelm will freak me out, not build me up.

Compromise
I asked for Sam at this first show. Then, I will gird my loins and attempt to crawl out of my cave in order to ride another horse at the second and third shows.

Future
Still utterly no clue what I will do when next season starts. [WNSSV] Show? Not show? Riding? Driving? Academy? Suit? ASB? TB? Winter Tournament does not require that any decisions be made.
