Smell the Roses, Look at the Trees, and eat some Grass along the way.

Today, I audited the first day of another clinic with Aimee Brimhall McCord.

I couldn’t help but find myself thinking very forward, very proactively, and with a lot of high level interests and goals in horses, horsemanship, Dressage, bodywork, and wellness.

One of the recurring things that comes up when I get to thinking in this way is the thought of “if I just had a fancier horse…”

This time, though, I had a counter-perspective.

I am so thankful for my horses.

Both Hope and Cherish are teaching me so much.

They can help me find sensitivity, accuracy, and consistency in my internal experience, presence, and communication with horses.

They are both teaching me so much about helping horses develop physical wellness.

They are teaching me to always treasure and continue to build upon the foundation.

These are all such valuable lessons that I need to learn effectively and own consistently before I am ever ready for another partner…

And I know that my next partner will be no more perfect, but more than likely will be the next teacher, with even more difficult and in depth lessons for both our partnership and for me.

So, the next time you feel like you’re getting ahead of yourself…

Appreciate those roses and trees and moments of both challenge and harmony, because where you are right now is where the lessons are learned.

Wellness and horses are my things. I'm a rider, a bodyworker, and a college student studying integrative health and wellness. I also love nature, yoga, my dog, art, writing, and cooking.
