Better the devil you know...

There is nothing better to make you appreciate what you have than to experience the opposite. I've heard it said that if everyone threw their problems into a pile to pick from, you would always choose your own back again after you saw the options.

I had that moment Friday when I rode a different horse in my morning training. Where Flame is light, sensitive, and hot-tempered, this horse is heavy, dense, and rather dull. Someone joked that he is a cross between a draft horse and a cow. It was an exhausting workout and I never could get him truly round and forward. But it was a good experience since I will now approach Flame with new appreciation and patience!
