Riding Through The Decades: Lessons, Challenges, And Mind Games In Equestrian Life

Being used to living an outdoorsy and adventurous life, I was drawn to horseriding. My love for the sport got me into reading Western cowboy books and so I decided to take the leap myself. A decade ago, I was learning how to ride a horse responsibly. It was difficult, but many things in life are. Obviously, I am a decade older now and a little smarter about equestrian things. I have learned many life lessons. Patience, probably the biggest one. Here is one of the Western cowboy books you will immensely enjoy. It is a story I wrote about my early horse experience. I lost Aztec about a year after I wrote this. He taught me a great deal about enjoying life. I am still enjoying equestrian life.
