I still have momens where I butrst into tears thinkning of stan. Stan was my everything for 10years and I miss him immensly. Heck just writing this has me in tears.
You have to move on and don't compare your new horse with your old one. Reeco does not get compared to stan as he would come up very very short if I did compare them. Compareing them would not be fair on Reeco, Stan was a "made" horse at the top of his game who was able to teach me, Reeco is unbroken, needs me to teach him but should he learn well will take me to higher levels of competition then stan ever did.
You just need to separate them in you mind, yes stan was special to me and always will be very very special but I have moved on.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
