Well getting my mom to ride once must have reignited her horse itch. She called this morning and wanted to know my schedule and we put her on the books to ride with me 4 days a week!!!!!
It probably seems silly to be so excited to spend time with one's mother but this is a great opportunity for me. She too was a trainer but due to injury stopped riding. She had 5 mentors when she was learning, 4 of whom are hall of fame inductees in the NRHA and/or AQHA. I've only scratched the surface of her knowledge and I am beyond excited to dig for more!
Keep your fingers crossed for me that she can ride pain free & keep it up!
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
