Zefir at Equidays

Zefir, 1 year ago today at her first outing, a wee gymkhana. I never imagined that day we would have gone to Equidays and performed at liberty, and Equitana inside the next 12 months! My job that day was to do whatever it took to help her feel confident, happy, and it be a positive experience we would both grow from. It was all of that.

Three months ago the Equidays opportunity popped up and I thought ' Oh we're not ready for that yet, we'll do it next year'...

Then I thought ' Louisa , in the last 20 years, you have invested probably close to 100,000 dollars in your education with horses...how long until you are ready?. If you were yourself 10 years ago looking at yourself now, would you think you were good enough?'

I am a student of life and of the horse, and I love learning new things. I realised at that moment that if I continued this way, I was never going to do anything, because I was always looking at the next level thinking I had to reach that before I was good enough to get out there!

I thought, ' I'm 43, life is going to run out if I don't get cracking, stop dicking around and just go for it!!'

And so I did.

I have learnt an incredible amount from the experiences of the last 3 months about myself and my horses.

Zefir in particular has been by my side throughout as I launched out of my comfort zone into the open. As much as my job is to build her confidence, I realise how much she has built mine and if it were not for her generosity, I might not be sitting here, feeling so good about our achievements, partnership and journey together so far. I feel very grateful we crossed paths.

I have made huge, mountainous goals recently, I'm no longer going to second guess my ability, my mind is open and receiving and I am going for it!! My horses will continue to teach me and I will happily share that with anyone who wants to join me on the journey :)
