I’ve been very discouraged lately. I watch me ride in the mirrors or look at pictures of me and PJ and just think we both look awful. Me. I look weak and uncoordinated and not all like I see at horse shows. PJ. Well, he is now 6yo and he filled out this year. He doesn’t look at all like the elegant horse I bought. He’s now kind of clunky looking.
Of course, that’s not fair to PJ. Today I needed a reminder of all of the good qualities he possesses. We went on a trail ride by ourselves. I was a little apprehensive to go out alone because I’m a chicken. But PJ was a champ, even when the deer jumped out of the grass next to us. His greatest asset is his brain. He’s kind, quiet, safe, fun, and tries really hard to be a good boy. There are people who would kill for a horse with those qualities.
Now I just have to find confidence in myself.
