Yesterday morning I started my day off at the barn, did some chores, and then rode my horse who has been rehabbing from an annular ligament tear that happened in February of this year. She’s far along enough now in her rehab that we’re doing some trot work and yesterday morning she simply felt fantastic and we had a great ride. That post-great-ride-feeling fueled me for the rest of my day long after I sat down at my desk to slog away at my non-horsey day job. I may not have run Burghley last week, but even small achievements can feel like really big wins sometimes.
