Funny you should post this...
Yesterday I went to the barn thinking: I'm not going to stress myself or my horse out. I'm just going to ride. Just relax and ride.
It must have been my vibe, because my horse was light, quiet, and easy going the whole ride. I was asking him for upward and downward transitions to just see if I could get him to take the bit and frame up, and sure enough he dropped his nose and was like butter in my hands. It was pretty nice!
Sometimes I get really caught up in training training training. Gotta focus on keeping him in his training! But we both get fried and just need to have a good time together once in a while.
Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
