Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

That Vince Lombardi quote is the first thing one sees walking in my barn. It's on a big white board right in front of the door.

Good article!

This was a good article. I love the part about showing! I one time had an instructor tell another that she'd rather have her "Kids know how to ride and make the worst possible score at a show, then teach them how to show and win and look like pretty idiots".

I know quite a few "trainers" who push their students to show and never really teach them to ride. It's very disappointing. It's a rare gem when you have someone who makes good riding a priority over horse showing.
