It is always bittersweet to say goodbye to the Christmas season. It seems that people are on their best behavior during the season, able to embrace cheer and compassion for fellow man. It is sad to see that behavior fade away as we ring in the New Year, but that is to be expected. After all, Christmas tends to bring out the best in us, but at Deer Creek Structures, we are as excited for the New Year as we were for Christmas.
In our eyes, the New Year should simply continue the compassionate momentum established on Christmas Day, an opportunity to reflect on where you have come from and where you will be going. That is why there are New Year’s resolutions, but resolutions do not necessarily have to deal with your personal development; they can deal with horses, especially if you are an equine enthusiast.
In this Horse Channel article, Julia Arnold offers up some resolutions for a happy, horsey New Year. She writes, “2015 is drawing to a close, and a brand new year will soon begin. January 1st is a good time to reassess our goals and dreams for the future, especially when it comes to equestrian life. There is always something new to learn in the horse world!”
That is a great way to view the equestrian life, that “there is always something new to learn in the horse world.” To prove this point, Arnold has taken some suggestions from readers regarding their own horsey resolutions and these include riding again and getting a horse ready to compete in shows. These are all worthwhile resolutions. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
