Wonder Woman Motivation

“You are stronger than you believe. You have greater powers than you know.” – General Antiope from “Wonder Woman

Riding horses is one of the greatest privileges on this earth. Each day at the barn, we have the opportunity to work with these individual, free-thinking, and majestic creatures. Every horse, however, reminds me on one occasion or another that they could spook or otherwise embrace their natural flight instincts instead of looking to me for guidance (see “Being Alpha”). 

But it is my job to be strong. It is my job to think past the scary plastic bag crinkling in the wind. It is my job to convince a 1,200 lb fearful animal that I am not afraid and therefore they shouldn’t be either. I know, it’s sometimes easier said than done, but “you have greater powers than you know.”

Be strong and make it happen.
