I'm often on my steel horse.
I have my "Turkey" days.

I intend to spend a little time exploring this topic here. For now, though, just take this away to ponder upon. If you find yourself feeling like you're working hard while riding your technique is off. We're doing something that's keeping our fleet and nimble steed from doing what it was born to do.
Miles and smiles,
