Sometimes all I need to get me motivated is to look through photos I have taken over the years. It can be home improvement projects, or riding my horses, or even surfing through old albums on Facebook. But then add on an inspirational quote and my motivation level goes through the roof!

In fact when I started looking through my catalogs of images along with thinking about which quote would go best with it, it motivated me enough to go out and work with Ethan for a bit. Even though it is only about 25 degrees out right now. I know, some of you would be grateful for the thermometer to hit that high right now. And I hope you and your horses are staying warm.

And days like this are great for finding the perfect quote to go with an image, and I thought I would share some of my most favorite quotes with you. Just in case you needed a little inspiration, or motivation for when you can get out there and work with your horse.

All of these quotes are borrowed from others, but the photos have all been captured by me.

And when we can’t get out and ride or even be with our horses every day, sometimes a little project like this can help you to find the motivation to make it happen.

And if you aren’t able to get out to your horse today, why not make a few of your own inspirational images? Spend a few minutes searching through Google and find some cool quotes, and then put them on your own images. It really can be inspiring!

And with the promise of spring coming, maybe you can find some inspiration for the upcoming riding season. I don’t know about you, but I am sooooo looking forward to the longer, and warmer days of spring!

      Saw this one recently…
      If you want a STABLE relationship, buy a horse.
      But I liked your quotes much better and seeing you with your horse.

      “No matter how much of a hot mess you are when you get to the barn…if you’re willing, your horse will always send you home in Stable condition!”
