I ride a quarter horse solid paint. His name is Trouble, and boy oh boy he can be! When I first got him all he knew what to do is walk trot and canter only on his right lead! I had to start training from the basics. I wanted Trouble to become a jumper. In the beginning, training him was so stressful! He was confused and got mad because Trouble did not know what I was asking him. I was so stressed and I always thought I would get know where! But over time I looked back on the problems we had and what they taught me. I realized every little mistake, buck, rear, or every jump he busted through taught me a lesson on what I was doing wrong not him and I realized we had to work together to become one! Over time I noticed changes in him. He became faster ,stronger, and actually jumping!! I was amazed all the hard work payed off and I was happy Trouble brought me through that stress. He taught me things take time. We cant rush what we dont understand. For an animal that does not speak he taught me alot and made me a stronger rider. <3 I love my stubborn strong headed horse and nothing not even busting through jumps will change that. Just got to keep moving forward!
Hard work pays off!
