How appropriate! The same can be said for our pursuits with horses too.
(photo of my champion buckle that I worked long and hard for years to win. I was so proud of Jackie, my horse and myself that day. Persistence and determination really do pay off.)
Here is a quote from Robert Wilkinson's article:
"Believe it or not, it was originally uttered by no other than President "Silent" Calvin Coolidge, who it seems left a final sentence that is usually omitted from the quote.
Today I offer it for your consideration and hopefully, meditation. Here is a gem of wisdom:
"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
And so can it be with horse training and riding and obtaining a better communication with your horse.
Ride, Ride, Ride!
