I accomplished something so small and so big at the same time today. After two weeks of riding my TB in a continually excited state due to high winds and low temperatures, and riding for hours in vain trying to convince him no monsters were present, I finally got him to RELAX today! I managed to push all the right buttons and was smart enough to stay away from the bad buttons. I rewarded every attempt he made to be brave and it paid off big time. He went from giraffe to Totilas in about 15 minutes floating around the ring like a balerina. Obviously there are no coworkers in my office or friends I can tell this to without them wondering what's wrong with me, so I'll telling all of you. I love the big little moments. Drove all the way down to work with a big grin on my face.
