Not long ago, I didn’t feel like an inspired rider. I felt I’d hit a wall in my 5-year-old gelding’s training progression. He’s always been a pretty solid soldier. I’ve asked him to go for long days, rope big steers, and put up with all-day horse shows and trips to cow works two states away.
Don’t work to keep an even keel. Instead, get active while riding, establish leadership with your horse, and feel your confidence blossom.
