    You might be "maturing" if you--

    Realize that those grannies had something when they told you there's a lot more deep down soul satisfaction to be had from walking your horse down the trail and looking for the lady slippers in the spring than tearing at breakneck speed over every log and gulley for an hour straight.

    I realized I had matured when I changed disciplines from two week pack trips in the wilderness to standing dressage in a clearing 100 yards from my house...when the weather was warm...after waking up from my nap...after doing stretching exercises so I could get my foot up to the stirrup without splitting my scrotum...

    Have you gotten to the point where you realized that your parents weren't so dumb after all and were right about may of the things they told you, if so your probably maturing. One of the bigger things is to realize your 40+ body can't take all that your 20 year old brain wants to do pain hurts now, slow down life goes by too fast as it is, learn to stop and smell the flowers along the way.

    lol I've definitely gotten to that point with my Dad, but it's still hard to ADMIT he was right all along..Darn pride, I thought I knew everything..The pain and ground is starting to get a little harder but I'm still not completely there on that one..lol I'm too busy to stop and smell the flowers just yet..Let me finish school and I'll have a picnic in a meadow and enjoy the WHOLE day smelling the flowers.

    Well DrumRunner that's a start. The ground is harder now that's why I don't ride the big young horses much any more, I like my Icelandics you have the spirit but the ground is so much closer. Lol

    You might be "maturing" if...

    Every year you notice the hay bales and water buckets are getting much heavier. To which you used to be able to explain away as it being.. 'eh just the extra 20 lbs you put on the arse that year which is making things more difficult.
    But now you realize things really and truely are getting heavier!
    (Plus all that extra arse weight is stuck like glue!)

    Or, you mistakenly click the other "mature" thread and think your brain's gone wobbly because you can't figure out what they are saying all of a sudden.....
    (Huh?....Oh, thank goodness I just clicked the wrong thread... thought I was having a twighlight zone episode or something... everything was the same, yet different)
