How I'm facing my fear head on

Last Update: September 28, 2013

So obviously as you all know I'm into horses. Well the one area I don't have much experience is hauling and trailering horses. I by golly can train one very well, but haven't trailered them at all. Now they all have some experience (they had to get to my house) however they don't have any since they got here. Today though in about 30 minutes we are going to be loading them and hauling them to AZ.

I am scared yes, and moving forward in spite of it. We have an experienced horse person that is taking themdown so its not like a rookie is. He even brought his horses up here from Pagosa Springs, CO. Although his horses had experience mine do not.

Isn't this what we are taught. Its OK to be scared but just don't let that hold you back. Well, I'll be on the road! But I will definitely be checking the comments!

Thanks everyone!

Thank you. So one of my least favorite horses was kicking my favorite horse. Oh no he didn't! That's not good but he has seemed to settle down now.

Absolutely awesome! Wow. This will be an epic day for you. Life changing. That is truly a fear to overcome and you're up for the challenge. Do what you do with your horses and I'm sure you know how to calm them. Horses are amazing and I'm envious of your talents, and happy for you. Just remember the saying: Feel the Fear ... and Do It Anyway. Keep us posted on how it went today! Excellent. (By the way, I love Pagosa Springs! Live in New Mexico, Durango etc... in West Michigan now. Miss the west; but adore the Great Lakes). Good luck today.
