Getting the Message
There are so many things to get right in horsemanship. So many ways to go wrong. We try our best. Fail sometimes. Learn. Try again. Eventually, we succeed more than we fail. Our horses tell us when we’re getting there.
Priority number one is to listen. I know I’ve made mistakes with Consolation. But lately, she whickers when she sees me coming with the halter instead of hay. It makes me happy, because she is happy. Because I’ve also done something right.
