Operating as usual


Doubts often lie to you.
They are similar to what is referred to in film and fiction as an “unreliable narrator.” 🎭
Instead of overthinking the moment or letting them stop you —> notice them, say, “Not today, thanks.” and re-focus on positive action steps that will help you accomplish your goal/dream/task. 🏆 Choices you make every day are the keys to success, keep making good ones!! 🙌

New session of Spring Mindset Boost is available soon - DM for more information! 💥💥

There are days in which a horse might not come any further than the warm-up phase, but this does not necessarily represent a setback. Horses are living things and are not the same every day. It is only a setback if you ignore the failed warm-up and still switch to the working phase. Then you can only ride with pressure and strength, which is an uncomfortable feeling for both horse and rider.

No doubt there are horses more suited to the aim of riding with subtle aids than others, but in the end this doesn’t matter. Every horse’s reaction to the rider’s aids can be improved on the basis of a proper warm-up and consequent conditioning, but not every horse is later ridden so sensitively. If you are able, just try to progressively reduce the strength of your aid.

"What does the phrase 'Inconvenient Truth' mean?

An inconvenient truth is what it sounds like: Something that's true but inconvenient. Typically the inconvenience comes down to having to take responsibility for something, or at least in admitting that the excuse you've been using doesn't hold up. It's an inconvenient truth that smoking is rather bad for your health."

Of the many inconvenient truths associated with horseback riding, the WORST ONE OF ALL is the simple fact that the rider needs to be fit and strong and agile enough to be able to ride without loss of balance and without too much debilitating fear.

I know people will HATE THIS POST. They will deny it, avoid it, ignore it. And they will never know what Walt Gervais here knew, riding in his first preliminary event at age 72, after beginning to ride in his mid 50s, that fitness equates to competence and confidence.

I am going to say that again---"Fitness equates to competence and confidence."

Want to be a better rider? A more confident rider? Get out there and do what athletes in all sports do---Get stronger and fitter. Don't like that idea? Fine, don't do it, but accept the consequences that you could have been so much more but MADE THE CHOICE not to.

And do not use age related excuses. Walt was still weight lifting in his mid 80s.


I am so excited to get my new Bua Performance Saddle! I first saw an ad for these a couple of years ago and they looked super interesting. Unfortunately, they are made in Ireland and at that time I could not find one to try in the US. Well that has changed. I was able to try one and I and my horses and everyone else that tried it loved it. That was their original Jump Saddle model, in the right hand photo. Then I discovered they had just come out with the Performance model, which is made of a more traditional saddle leather and appearance and has wool flocked panels instead of the textile foam panels of the original. They also make a Dressage Saddle for all of my Dressage friends.
Both saddle are fantastic! Check out their website for more info. https://www.buasaddles.com/
And if you want to try one come visit me at LAEC.

My 2 yr old GOV filly Dream On, a.k.a Della a.k.a. Scooby, x Delta Force (Diarado x Cassini) out of my TB mare Annie, is growing up and looking great. We got in a few minutes of work in the round pen today. But her pasture mate was whinnying constantly so my girl was having a very hard time concentrating 😳🦄
