Haha-yeah-mine says to me-"you paid good $$ for those, now stick them out!" lol!!
I also frequently remind myself of "look down and that is where you 'll end up!"
and "if it isn't a problem, don't make it one" (meaning any horse/rider can screw up sometimes, don't make a huge deal of it.....just go on)
But my favorite is becoming my mantra......".make the right thing easy, and the wrong thing difficult". Works every time, but takes some thought with different issues we encounter.
