honestly saying “youre a twig lets get some meat on those bones” is just as offensive and embarrassing as “youre fat, watch what you eat” may not seem like it but trust me

It’s not about the kissing, holding hands, the dates, the sex, and showing off. It’s about being with someone who makes you happy in a way that no one else can. It’s about being with someone who accepts you and your weirdness. It’s about being yourself around them and they can be their self around you.

My horse is my partner, my teammate, my horse is not my tool, and not my object. She is the other half to this team and without her participation I wouldn’t be here competing with her. I take better care of her than I ever would myself.

It’s true that it’s not about the ribbons.  Why do we hang our ribbons on our walls? Is it so that when someone walks into your room, they see you as accomplished? Is it so that you can see your greatness?  Last year, I threw away all of my ribbons and started fresh. Why? I had a misconception about ribbons the entire time. I thought ribbons showed my ability, my strengths. They were ribbons that I had won out of desire and selfishness. Last year, I redesigned my idea of what a ribbon is. A ribbon shows progress. Yes, they show ability and strength, but they also show weakness. That fifth place? If I had been ten seconds faster on cross country, it would have been a first. That third? If my canter transition had been smoother in the dressage pen, a second.  But that’s what this sport is. This sport is tough and will push you down, sometimes make you feel incompetent. But it’s also what separates the good from the great. Are you going to sit in the dust and wallow about your weakness, or are you going to display it proudly, get back up and push back?
Weakness is progress, because if you recognize something as weakness, that’s the biggest step you can take in the right direction. Weakness is what we build on, until our weaknesses become our strengths. When you look at a ribbon, what do you see?

This is so powerful.

People often ask me why there are so many crazy people in the equestrian world. My response is that it takes a crazy person to pay an obscene amount of money to jump horses over wooden sticks.



Mary has a some cuts on her neck probably from Comet, and her back leg has a cut as well. Then under her cheek she has another cut thankfully they aren’t deep but how in the hell does she get them?!



Sometimes I wonder how horses even get cuts at the most random spots that seem almost impossible to get cut.

Apparently horses in 1943 were pretty chill. (Don’t repost)
