When you push it a bit too far..
Ever have that moment when you ask a hair too much of your horse and then get frustrated when they can't comply... And then feel ashamed later on for getting mad at something that was never their fault? I'm having one of those moments. I haven't goofed up like that for years because I try really hard to be very in tune with what my horse is and isn't [physically and emotionally] ready to achieve.
I guess it was just our off day.
Side note- I do know what I am doing, know how to ride and know it was my fault for not reading my horse and his abilities prior, but we are humans and nowhere near to perfect, so yes I messed up. I just had to vent about it.
I also see it as a blessing as it shows us how much more we can learn with our horses.
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. -Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
