Once upon a time, I called myself a Weenie Rider. You know, not too scared, not really brave but willing to do what I was told to do but never bold enough to push my edge. I secretly dreamed of going Training but whimpered like a newborn baby walking my first Novice course of the 2010 season.
Self-Talk is self-fulfilling. Changing the way I thought about myself put me on the direct path to getting to my Inner Cowgirl! Not being a cowgirl but becoming a living fire breathing, gun totin' cowgirl on a pinto pony!
Foxhunting sealed the deal (more on that some other time)! My inner cowgirl rules!
