Life is Simple… Just Ride

hoof care during winter

Do you have a resolution for this New Year? The meaning of the word resolution is to be firm in purpose or belief. As horse people, we are pretty clear we want horses in our lives, so we manage our lives with this is mind. Choices have consequences, good and bad, expected and unintentional. The outcomes of your choices may not be evident today or even next year. The thing is, who you are now is a result of the choices you made five years ago, three months ago and yesterday. The choices you’re making today will create your tomorrow, your year and ten years from now. It’s all OK because all you really need to do, is make choices that make you happy.

Dr. Michelle Robin, author of The E Factor: Engage, Energize, Enrich – Three Steps to Vibrant Health, talks a lot about the compounding effects of the small decisions we make. She refers to them as debits and credits to your health account. Building health is not unlike building wealth. It is the compounded effects of the little choices (and some big choices) that create your future in every aspect of your life. Some of those little choices are preventative measures. You brush your teeth for good breath, a white smile and to keep your teeth. You take your car in for oil changes, a fluid check and tire rotation to keep it running well and lasting longer.

You keep your horse’s hooves trimmed and hydrated. You use Cavallo Hoof Boots to provide your horse with comfort and protection and to make sure you are both safe out on the trails. You make sure he is fed all day, has his coat brushed, is exercised and socialized, and you do other preventative and maintenance efforts to stave off issues and create a foundation for a healthy and happy horse.

What else will you do this year to further enjoy your life with your horse and make a deposit in the bank of your future? I have decided to do something I have always wanted to do. I am going to a dude ranch to just ride.

Life is Simple…..Just Ride.
