As riders, we want to be the best we can for our horses.
It can feel as though there just isn’t enough time to ride at the level we wish we could.
There is so much to learn, so many skills to master.
But if we pause, and are honest, the best moments are often those where we aren’t trying so hard. The moments where we are just enjoying time with our horse, going with the flow of the ride.
This is January 1. The beginning of a new year, and the fresh start many have been craving after the challenges of 2020. Whether you are thinking about goals and resolutions for this new year, or you take things day by day, what is the balance you find between striving to meet your goals and still enjoying the moment?
Here’s how I look for this balance, with an example of how it can work with a specific goal – smooth canter transitions.
