Every day in your (horse) life is valuable.

We should let go of the idea that everything and every moment (or training with our horse) should be a happy, joyful, or successful moment.

When that would be the case, we would not learn a lot, and we would less appreciate the good moments.

There is no good without bad.
There is no happiness without unhappiness
There is no success without failure.

If we don't know how failure feels, we can't know how success feels.
If we don't know how sadness feels, we can't know how joy feels.
If we never experienced rain and cloudy sky, we would not know how nice and beautiful a blue sky is, we would be used to it and not appreciate it as much.


As a professional horse trainer, I still have days that the training of my horse(s) is not going as well as I would like.
I sometimes feel a bit doubtful or even unsuccessful, but I have learned to accept this.

 When I have such moments, I reflect on my training, and I try to see/feel where things were going wrong or where I can change something, so it becomes better.

Then, when that happens, and the next session or training with my horse goes better, I feel happy, I feel joyful.

The bad day(s) before gave me experience, and the worst days gave me lessons.
Now the good day gives me happiness!
And sometimes it's soooooo good, then I make memories with my horses.

Thus, every day has his value!

If you accept there are bad days and worst days, there will be a lot of good days and best days!

With love,
