It's amazing what you can learn in the strangest places.... :)

yes we are always learning, no matter how long or how much we know, there is always something to learn, nobody knows everything

This!

I sit at a desk all day too and work can be stressful at times. But as soon as I leave for the barn it all goes away. While I'm out at the barn and riding, work literally never enters my mind - very few things in my life can do that so thoroughly.

When I recently went back to riding i came off my lesson horse fairly early on - going into a canter she stumbled and came down to her knees; I was a bit forward and as she came down I realized I wasn't going to be able to stay on so I tucked into a somersault over her shoulder. I was fine and after we made sure she was fine I did get back on and ride for a few minutes more. But even after such an easy fall, my next few rides were not real enjoyable. But I kept at it.

Yesterday my lease horse spooked and took off as I was riding him in bareback. I distinctly remember thinking "I am NOT going to fall off!" So I just hung on to his (thankfully) thick mane until I could get him turned around. It was the best feeling! After I figured out I wasn't going to fall off it was pretty fun:)

I have to say, that sounds pretty bad ***. Good for you!
