Are you satisfied with your horse?
I was reading Lisa and Ducks blog a week or so ago and she said she attended a Carol Coppinger Clinic - lucky her!
Carol asked everyone if they were satisfied with their horse and everyone in turn piped up with all the things they would like to improve with their horse.
Carol said that while we are focussing on the things we want to change in our horse they feel the pressure that they are not yet good enough, from us.
So - while it's great to have goals for our horse and ourselves, we should be happy with what we have today as well. This will take the pressure away from the horse (and perhaps ourselves).
Reminds me of a saying I like to use. Be grateful for what you have.
