I recently read that the craziest, strangest, or less popular kids grow up to be the greatest people. Truth is that people who chance the world are unique. They are often not easy or “normal” in any way, but like I always said “no one got famous for being normal”. The same is true for dressage greats, and the truly special, gifted horses -- the horses that change your life -- are often not the easiest, nor quietest nor calmest. More often than not they have quirky personalities, big hearts, and can throw a nice tantrum just to keep you on your game.
