Growing up I was raised to ride and train horses by my mom. She invested in four trainers to teach me to ride a horse. Se was passionate about riding and wanted it to be a hobby that we could enjoy together. Ironically enough, it did one day happen. However, that’s because she never gave up me learning it.

Once I learned how to ride and ride well, the next step was learning how to train horses. I can remember getting tired of having to spend 2 hours every day working with my horse regardless of the weather. I honestly started to wonder if I’d ever get him totally spook free. However, I did finally get him to the point that I could shoot a gun off his back and do anything else with him without concern of him being afraid of it. I rode him in parades filled with all kinds of things. Yet, he trusted me enough to keep it steady and calm throughout all of it.

It wasn’t easy getting him to this point. There were many days I thought about quitting on him, but I didn’t. He was a challenging horse to work with. At that time in my life, trusting anything or anyone other than myself was a task.

I ended up having to learn how to trust again in order to be able to help him. If I had given up, I would have never felt the pride of knowing I transformed Tripp the way I did. I also wouldn’t have learned the value of working with someone rather against them to achieve the results I seek daily.
