VCBH: Do-Over

From L. Williams : If you could have one do-over in your horse life, what would it be?

Looking back on Mollie and I's 13 years together, there are tons of things I would change.  I can't say I have any regrets, because I think everything we've been through has been instrumental in making us who we are today, but there are definitely things I would change.

The main one would likely be getting more serious about dressage sooner.  I absolutely loved my time dabbling in other disciplines like hunters, jumpers, and eventing, and Mollie adored it as well.  Looking back however, I feel like we basically got halfway decent at a bunch of things but never really great at anything.  While I love that I can hop on my horse and do almost whatever I want, I'd be lying if I said I didn't care that we weren't great at anything.

I think if I had buckled down harder, had a clearer path of what I wanted to do, and actually pursued getting help to get there, Mollie and I would be much farther along in our dressage careers.
