I don't have a horse now & my horse search/life isn't going well. My last few rides were very frustrating and I'm losing a lot of motivation. How can I be positive through this?

I had the same thing happen to me. :( I had, at that point, just settled on a horse because I was so sick of looking unsuccessfully and it honestly just felt like I couldn’t catch a break. All of the horses I actually liked were going lame or someone had already taken them. I didn’t get along with that horse at all and it was honestly the biggest mistake of my life. But then I ended up finding my heart horse in the weirdest place!! Don’t settle for second best. Just know that there honestly is a horse for everyone, and the good ones are worth the wait, trust me. It might seem so frustrating now (I know how it feels! I almost quit riding because I was so fed up) but don’t give up!
I completely understand. Everyone has their off days. I am searching for a horse currently, and I guess I just haven't found the right one yet, and feel like I never will. But just stay positive, because the best things are yet to come:)
