Hard Work Pays Off!

Well, I'm back from the Memorial Day Classic in Waco and I wanted to take the time to say hard work pays off. We did awesome, walked away circuit champions of our class, picked up 29 points, and secured ourselves a position on the APHA honor roll (which we were not expecting). Of course, the honor roll standings will not be updated until the results of the show are posted but I am tickled to death none the less.

So what is the lesson learned here? Hard work pays off. I'm not talking working your horse hard, yanking his face off right before the class, drilling him on the back-ups and pivots. I'm talking short practices each day BEFORE the show. It just doesn't pay off to drill your horse right before the class. This is how patterns are lost; not won. A small, short practice is fine... drilling... no. The other lesson learned... you don't need a trainer to do well. Happy Memorial Day everybody! Hope your weekend was as good as mine.
