I love this article at Horse Listening: 20 Ways Horse Riding Becomes Life Itself.
There are many lessons that I take away from my equestrian activities — one of the most important is that progress is incremental, but sticking to it achieves results. Not just in your riding, but in every aspect of your life. It’s just easier to see when you finally achieve your riding goals.
My horses also constantly remind me to forgive — they forgive many bad rides and confusing aids.
They also help me live in the moment and give me some respite from regrets over what happened in the past and worry over what might happen in the future.
How does your work with horses mirror your life?
