Old Horseman's Hint -
peel a chestnut, keep it in the pocket of your (gnarly old worn out) coat
Next time you come to deal with an angry non-cooperative beast of a horse, take said chestnut out of your pocket and offer him a sniff.
The best instant chill-pill for horses.
(is this the origin of "that old chestnut" phrase?)
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
