I had my last training session of 2009 today. Wow! It is the end of the year already. I can’t believe how much I have learned just in this year. This year has been filled with many things. I have been humbled and praised, encouraged and rebuked. I have laughed and cried, ridden and fallen off. I believe that this year has been terrific and filled with way more good things than bad things.
I have learned many lessons and I hope I may learn many more (though, not all through experience). I learned to be lighter. To be patient, or at least wait for my horse. I learned to listen to what my horse was telling me. I learned how to clicker train. I learned that timing is everything. These may be small things, but they are things that I hope I will remember always.
Thank you Karen, Romy, Hannah, JP, and many others who have helped me on my journey.
Happy New Year!
