Your challenging horse helps you grow

Some days, some situations, and some experiences can be difficult... You might wonder how you will cope with it, or if you will be able to solve the problem you're facing.

This is also the case when it comes to horses and training horses...

In that situation, the quote "Smooth seas don't make skillful sailors", is a great help to remind you that rough seas - and challenging horses - help us to learn and grow. They teach us the very important life skill - and trainer skill - to stay calm and confident.

In my life with horses, it were often the most "difficult" horses that taught me the most.

Next time you're struggling with your horse, think about this quote and remember that you developing yourself and that your horse came on your path for a reason!

And, you don't have to do it on your own.  A good sailor asks for help if the storm is too hard and there's a risk the boat will sink...

Asking for help is also a life skill.

So I just want you to know, I can help you if you would like that!
