I guess I am proud that I can take my horses out by myself on the trails and be comfortable with them, just them and me. And that I taught both of my current horses to side-pass. And that I don't seem to get as rattled by nervous horses the way some people do. I just sort of go-with-the-flow and ride out their nervousness. But I really don't have any major accomplishments to be proud of. Both of my riding horses were already more-or-less trained.

Even the yearling that I raised myself is a brat. So I guess I don't have much to be proud of.

I wish I had a story that I trained a horse and it turned out fantastic.
I wouldn't be so hard on yourself. There are lots of things to be proud of. It doesn't have to be a huge thing, I am proud every day when I go out and accomplish something I was trying to. Even if it was jsut to get through the ride without ending up on my head. Or teaching a horse to stand still when being saddled. Take pride in the small things and one day they will all add up to something big!

I'm also proud of how Rocky can stop and back up by squeezing just a lil bit around his neck w/o any tack at all!

I'm proud of every single thing about my boy :) He came to me off the track, skinny, agressive & the only thing he knew was to go forward as fast as he could & bulldose everything in his track!

Now we are competing in 90cm/3ft classes, elementary dressage, I'm able to ride & jump him tackless, he canters to the gate when he sees me, he's safe as houses when hacking, he's been ridden by my 3 year old half brother & 60 year old grandfather, oh the list just goes on! I'm just so proud of him in every way :)
