Your favorite Horse show.
I don't have one yet, because I haven't been in one yet. At this point I am not sure if I ever will.
I'm feeling pretty torn about whether or not I should even continue on with my attempts at the Ranch Horse Competition. I was told today that my horse doesn't have what it takes. I was told that it is a direct result of being over exposed, being roped on too hard, long before he was ready, and now he is just too scared of things. I was told that this is the reason why he struggles with everything I try to teach him.
I thought, all things considered, he was coming along nicely. I guess I thought wrong. I was not told that my lack of experience only makes it worse, but I didn't need to be told that. I already knew that. I'm trying to learn, but it is hard to do on my own.
Sometimes it is hard to hear the truth.
So, maybe it is time to just give up.
Maybe it is best if my ponies and I just stick to trails and stuff like that.
OR maybe its time for a new trainer.
