I have been reflecting on how and what I have learned in my lifetime. There are teachers and there are students. I have been both but for the last year I have been the student. Since I retired I have had the opportunity to follow my passion of riding. My teachers have been my horse Buddy and my trainer Lara Delorenzo at 7 Springs Farm in Pittstown, NJ.
I have learned to wait and to be better prepared for what is being asked. This was hard at first since the past 30 years was all about meeting deadlines and getting things done quickly. A horse won’t allow to happen if you want to develop a true partnership.
