set backs and starting over

As F. Scott Fitzgerald once wrote, "Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over."
No one knows this better than dressage riders!  Many things conspire to get in the way of our goals:  weather, injuries, family commitments.  The most accomplished riders are not necessarily the ones who ride every day regardless, but the ones who "Keep their heart in it" when times are tough. 
Disappointment and frustration are a part of this sport.  But so is beauty, inspiration and great satisfaction.
Don't let the rain, cold and gray get you down.
