Well I'm in a pretty rough spot right now. My horse is in Maryland, USA and where am I? Oh.. New Zealand.
Over 7,000 miles away. I think it was like 12800kms? Not sure.
But I miss him like crazy is watching videos that I took of us riding and just focusing on how far we've come and how much he has improved. I think about how he's in good hands and he's so healthy and doing fabulously.
Now when I was there with him and we had a rough day, I'd think about what went wrong. And I'd forgive him and focus on ways to make the next time with him better so we can avoid making the problems again.
That's what helps me, along with updates and progress that my friend and the barn give me from time to time, managing his farrier, vet, and expenses helps me too. But that prob. doesn't apply to you..
And watching accomplished riders.. even if I don't know them personally (like people on the forum) really helps me focus on good things and improving in my riding :)
And I shouldn't have named names cause there's a WHOLE bunch of others.. lol so OMITTED!
