Ask @alexzetterman : What is the most important to your true happiness at high level: being able to select the horses you want to ride, entering the best shows, good owners…?
Having the opportunity to show at a level where there is true competition with others who have worked their way to be there!
Your happiness should be something simple, no matter the level. If your happiness changes as you advance through levels, your ego is overruling your role as an equestrian. My happiness has always come from just the mere presence or smell of my horses. Find joy in the little things, and you’ll never be sad. Don’t find joy in how high or how well you do, find joy in the people and animals allowing you to do your dreams everyday. Food for thought. Kristina. 💕
Hi Alexandra,

For sure the dream is as a rider if you can manage to get everything in place. World class horses, world class shows and world class owners, but it shouldn’t be what makes you happy because then the risk is that you’ll never allow yourself to be happy..!

Alex.
