A HORSEMAN'S JOURNEY
Each of us takes a journey,
Some walk, while others run,
But, it is still your journey.
Your journey is yours.
Do not compare your progress with others,
Compare it with yourself.
Each horse we ride gives us a different feel,
Each horse we ride gives us a different attitude,
Each horse we ride gives us a different response,
Each horse we ride causes us to have different emotions.
Emotions and horsemanship are not great companions.
The challenge we face is to gain our knowledge and share that
with our horse without having emotions come into play.
Should you succeed in this, you have won a significant battle with yourself.
While out competing, remember one thing.
It is just another ride, albeit with people watching.
Ride until you have nothing left, then ride some more.
And remember this, your horse will always give you more
than you will ever be able to give them.
Enjoy the ride; there is always another day.
