The Perfect Horse
The Perfect Horse isn't necessarily stunningly beautiful;
In fact, he's probably gotten a few scars and dings from life.
He's probably been hurt but lived through it, been scared but
overcome it, and ready to teach his rider to do the same.
The Perfect Horse is not just arena-ridden. He
will let you feel what it's like to gallop into the ocean waves,
chase a neighbor's cows, or play tag on horseback.
The Perfect Horse will buck you off when you deserve it, but wait
patiently for you to get back on.
The Perfect Horse has problems; He will teach you to deal with
The Perfect Horse knows that you can't learn to be a skilled
horseman if everything goes your way.
The Perfect Horse will challenge you, but only as much as you are
ready to handle. He will teach you that you still have more
The Perfect Horse will forgive you when you make mistakes, and
expects you to do the same. He will try to ignore the tack that
doesn't fit right, the confusing signals, and will do his best
to please. He will teach you to work,
but it will be worth it.
The Perfect Horse may not be the prettiest or the fastest, but he has the most heart.
