My new instructor is amazing and now I'm learning dressage with the goal of eventually doing Jumpers.
That is very exciting!!!! Learning new things is always a good thing. For me when I am working with my horse, it isn't really WORK. Yes I am tired at the end but I always have a real sense of accomplishment especially when I get something for the first time. The accomplishment makes it so much fun, not to mention I am getting to spend time with one of my best friends. It amazes me how close I feel to my horse. I know he doesn't feel
the same way because he is a horse and they don't have the same people emotions that we do, but I do feel like he is one of my best friends. He always is able to make my day better and cheer me up when I really need it most and he is the best secret keeper ever!
I don't understand how some people just don't have horses in their lives...
