What Bar was telling me yesterday

I found this post by TB at X via Sarah at Miles on Miles.

This in particular seems like what Bar was trying to tell me yesterday:
"You will not learn to train a horse until you have been humbled by many horses. Until you accept this, you will continue to make the same mistakes and continue to only work with “stubborn”, “stupid”, or “problem” horses. The most difficult horses have the most to teach you… but you have to let them."
"AND," he says, "you'd be bored with a push-button horse anyway. Bored, bored bored."

Isn't that the truth:) As much as I joke about wanting a push button trail horse, I wouldn't trade my TB for a hundred of them. I loved that post...seriously everything she said resonated with me. Glad you liked it too!

I love it! Push-button horses sound so appealing on certain days... but then.. yeah.. they're boring. Bless them.

You've always liked a challenge. From the time you could open your teeny little mouth. So, no, you wouldn't want a "push-button" horse.

Love, Mom
