Another Endurance ride in the books

Friday, July 31, 2015

emoticon This is Mandate for Gold & I pushing our way through humid weather & one of the hottest rides we have ever competed together. (this past weekend) Mandate for Gold is a Georgian Grande horse (Saddlbred x Belgian draft) and hasn't done a distance ride in 3 years. A LOT of horses pulled or were pulled due to the heat, and he was able to motor on through-- we slowed way down, though saw the photographer on the hill and decided to trot for a nicer pic- the halfway point was just around the bend.

I just wanted to say, don't hold it off. You know that thing you are waiting to do until you look perfect doing it. Don't. Don't wait. On the outside, to the world you may not look ideal doing it but I'd light to let you in on a BIG secret; ON THE INSIDE= it still feels amazing.

Even though we typically have finished in the top ten, we barely finished in time due to the heat. And guess what? We still enjoyed ourselves, had fun, made memories. AND yes, we turtled (were last place, first time for everything!) emoticon and considering how many didn't finish, I'm pretty proud of being a turtle that day.

This is YOUR life, make those memories while you still can. The clock it ticking on what you love, go be PART of it. emoticon
much love,
