Dressage riders tend to be perfectionists. I’ve noticed that dressage riders are often very tough on themselves if things aren’t exactly right.
What if your ride today was just a tiny bit better than it was yesterday? Would that be enough?
Jane tells people to invent reasons to celebrate. She knows that those “little bit betters” very quickly add up to a whole lot better!
When you go to the barn today, pick something to work on and notice if, at the end of your ride, it’s just a little bit better. Then celebrate!
Life is not a destination; it’s a journey.
Going for a walk with Jane is one of my favorite things to do. We can walk for miles, just looking at new things and taking in the interesting smells.
Jane likes to think when we walk. She comes up with some of her best ideas for her books and DVDs while quietly strolling down the long paths around where we live.
Walking is a great way to help your mind and your body. It helps strengthen your heart and your legs, and it helps calm your mind. When you’re stressed or upset, a nice long walk can really make a difference in how you feel.
Besides, your dog loves it. Be sure and take him with you.
See you on the path!
