Thanks for Spooky Thoughts

Thanks!  I’m taking notes on all of your comments!

I really liked what Denise said about feeling like a victim and waiting for something to happen and the quote about fear being a misuse of the imagination, what Annette said about reading the horse, and Erica on breathing from your center while riding.  I’d like to get to the point where I can comfortably ride a horse other than Moe but like Leah says, why not enjoy him while we’ve got him with us.

I’ll try to talk Leah into buying a HUGE whiteboard and setting it up in the “spooky” end of the indoor ring. Then I can print the message of the day for my lesson/riding session on the board in large, easy-to-read letters and read it every time we go past the board.

  1. While I’m still a novice I have learned one very important lesson — it’s OK to get off, or not get on at all if the horse isn’t ready or willing to have a rider at that moment.

  2. Erica

    A white board — that’s a great idea! I love it! Of course, at first it might spook Moe! But he’ll get used to it.

  3. I love the white board idea too! Keep your goal or reassurance or whatever you need to help you through right there where you can’t miss it. Brilliant!!
