How is it October already?
For some of us, October means the end of show season. For others, it means it is time for the big year end champ shows. For some October is cooler, nicer riding weather, and the perfect time to enjoy spending time with your horse. For others, we are feeling the chill of fall and impending winter, so we are scrambling to get in rides on our horses before snow arrives.
Horsemanship Journeys can be a rough ride! There will be challenges and obstacles, especially if you chose to compete with your horse. Winning with your horse requires more than just horsemanship skills and talent. To be able to thrive along this journey, you need a Cowgirl Mindset.
Hi there Mom. I see you. I see you struggling to juggle all of the demands in your life. From taking care of your kids, to the demands of your job, trying to keep up on the endless pile of laundry and dishes, making time to ride can see impossible. So when you finally do get the time to ride, feeling afraid in the saddle can quickly take all of the fun out of an activity that you used to enjoy-spending time with your horse! I understand your struggle. Riding after having kids is not the same. Because YOU are not the same. The physical changes are obvious. Our bodies are not the same after having kids! It takes time (and work!) to regain our core strength, to adjust to changes in balance and strength.
