I'm jumping on the blog hop bandwagon today, because this topic is simply too good to resist:
Let's take a moment to appreciate the Pros of our current ponies, whether you own them or just ride them in lessons.
My relationship with Mystyc is almost four months old, and it's fair to say that I've spent a lot of that time not appreciating Mystyc.
Because I was still recovering from my accident, I didn't ride Mystyc before I signed the lease papers. That was probably a mistake.I didn't realize how green she was...
Or how complicated...
She was perhaps not the best choice for someone coming back from a major injury, and I'm sad to say that I've held that against her. Even on days when she's mostly good...
I tend to focus on the few bad moments.
This really isn't fair to Mystyc.Fortunately, the last couple weeks have been a lot better.
It's taken most of four months, but I've truly begun to appreciate Mystyc, both on the ground and under saddle.
I feel so fortunate to have this cute, complicated, little bay mare in my life.She may not be the easiest horse I've ever ridden, but I feel confident that she's worth the effort.
