True! I believe the suffering of my childhood does have one great advantage...it has made me a better teacher & better able to understand and be there for my students who are living through hardships. Our past is meant to teach us valuable lessons and help us grow.

The past is a trail you leave behind, much like the wake of a speedboat. That is, it's a vanishing trail temporarily showing you where you were. The wake of a boat doesn't affect it's course--obviously it can't since it appears behind the boat. So consider this image when you exclaim that your past is the reason you aren't moving forward.

Letting go doesn’t mean we don’t care. Letting go doesn’t
mean we shut down. Letting go means we stop trying
to force outcomes and make people behave. It means
we give up resistance to the way things are, for the
moment. It means we stop trying to do the impossible–
controlling that which we cannot–and instead, focus on
what is possible–which usually means taking care of
ourselves. And we do this in gentleness, kindness,
and love, as much as possible.
Melody Beattie.

Count your blessings at the end of every day – don’t focus on the problems you’ve faced that day; rather, think of all the good things that happened and the happiness they gave you.

A kicking horse is engaging in that behavior for one of two reasons…
either he’s afraid of you or
he doesn’t like you!
It would be easier on our egos if we could make it more complicated than that, but that’s the simple, distasteful truth.

ok, this one cracked me up. two funny..

Recently Linda Parelli came off Remmer and broke a few ribs.

needless to say, people have ton's of things to say
but this i thought was the best, and so very true LOL

Having ridden 25+ years and somewhere in the area of 30-40,000 miles, on lots of horses from unbroke to Old Dobbin, I figure I have come off at least 75 times (that's when I stopped counting) for one reason or another: bucks, rears, falls, jumps, spooks, spins, you-name-it.

With bucking horses, I learned to feel when my horse was bowing up and be preemptive.

With rearing horses, I learned to feel when the front-end was getting light and take it away.

With falling and tripping horses, I learned to "help" the horse regain its balance.

With over-jumping horses, I learned to ask for calmness, judgment.

With spinning, spooky horses, I learned to build trust/confidence.

With runaway horses, I learned to get ahead of it, then analyze and help the horse find what it really needed.

Pat says: "Focus gives you feel; focus and feel give you timing; focus, feel and timing give you balance."

I long ago noticed that some of the best horsemen in the world were rodeo rough stock riders. Wonder why?
