“Adversity’s Gift”

THERE IS ALWAYS A GIFT WITHIN EVERY TRIAL THAT IS EQUAL TO OR
GREATER THAN THE TRIAL ITSELF

I have trained and shown cutting horses for a lifetime.

As a professional trainer, I can remember sad trips home when I bombed out of a national cutting competition in Fort Worth, Texas. Sometimes I lamented my mistakes during the entire four-hour drive from North Texas to South Texas. UGH!
