"My advice: Enjoy the precious time you have with your horse. Even if you are one of the fortunate ones that get to share a decade or more of trail time together, it is never enough. Never take any ride on your horse for granted. Try and do at least one new ride a year. If you really want to ride, set goals and make them happen….turn those excuses into opportunities and never give up on achieving your goals and dreams. It’s never going to be easy and there will never be a better time than NOW to start planning for your next ride. Happy trails, Karen"
