"Anybody can be an a$$hole once you make up your mind he is."

This is a quote I have always liked about making perception reality. I giggled about it today as I worked my horses. The sun was shining, I'm a smitten kitten, and all I could think was "man my horses are all soooooooo good" as I petted them and loved on them. "You're the prettiest, most talented horse in the world (don't tell the others.)" It took about 4 horses of that to realize that it is unlikely that they pulled out of their stalls any differently today, than they do any day. However, I was in a bright mood, and they responded. It just reminded me that when I am having less than stellar rides, it is as likely not to be because of the horse at that moment, either. Disposition can be powerful, and even more so when dealing with horses. It is something I have known, but really hit home today. Giddyup!

  1. I so agree. Always look to yourself and don't blame your horse, or your dog, or whatever. Animals immediately pick up on the signals we send.
