|The "Best" Dog - Bruno|
Everyone was his equal and his friend
Why must "we" categorize folks with sweeping generalizations. If I see one more thread begin "trashing" the rich for owning/riding/competing great horses at the top levels, I will be forced to "express" myself yet again in some wordy post (translate... controlled counter comments).
Being rich does not necessarily translate as spoiled, lazy, untalented riding on talented horses, nor does it mean that they do not have to work hard to achieve any level of competence. Truthfully, I want to be rich and in some cultures, I am.
Yes, the young are full of life and yes, they may feel like our advice is somber and slow. This is what makes them young. Like a yearling running free in a pasture... their wings are unclipped, their feet untethered. Me? I'm tethered to Advil, a career, a home, horse and two dogs. I say, let them learn... some will gain by experience and great mentors, others by hard knocks... oh, but they will learn. One day, they will be us... and, I hope they will be kind.
