Don't give up...

It's easy to give up.

I've mentioned before that my riding coach has a very big, very high quality Warmblood gelding. He is a super nice horse, rated at Grand Prix quality.

He is also super challenging to ride. Physically. At one point, she was on the verge of giving up. She was all set to sell him and buy a 'nice little amateur horse'.

Her trainer convinced her to give it a while longe. That, of course, was when everything came together and she worked out how to ride him.

It's often when we are closest to giving up that we are also closest to our breakthroughs. Just food for thought.
