Take the Initiative

Take the initiative. take the first step against drudgery. Drudgery means dull, irksome, and fatiguing work, uninspiring and menial. Get up. Go feed the horses. Transform menial into purposeful.

The way a person does a task makes the difference in us, in the people around us, in our horse.  If we get up and do the work, everything is better for it. The drudgery is done and makes room for inspiration. We’ll ride better, train better, be better.  Our horse will ride better, train better, be better
