Progress

موقع أيام نيوز

The dictionary defines progress as a movement toward a goal or higher stage. When I look at the two pictures taken about six months apart I see the fruits of my horses and my labour. I see a more mature horse who is developing a topline and also now able to move with some selfcarriage in a proper shape. Sure my left wrist is still going rogue and my shoulders could be back over my hips where they belong but the difference in my horse is astonishing. 
Sometimes you have to look back to appreciate how far youve come. When youre in it for the long haul its easy to get bogged down in the daily struggles and forget about the significant triumphs. To be honest it wasnt that long ago I was a little terrified of taking my horse out of the barn. Now we are starting to not only venture out of the barn and indoor ring but also off the property too. Just because you still have a long way to go doesnt mean you havent come so very far already.
