OK, so you’ve fallen off.

It hurt.

You’ve looked around to see if anyone else has noticed.

You lose a little bit of confidence.

You wonder if you could ever ride a horse in the first place.

Was is the horse’s fault?

Was there something wrong with the equipment?

Did you do something wrong?

Whatever caused the problem, it’s time to dust yourself off and get back on the horse.

Start again.

Get going.

Learn from the experience.

Remember why you were riding in the first place.

Now is not the time to feel sorry for yourself or to give up.

Yes, you may fall again.

In fact you quite possibly will.

If that happens, you know what to do.

I don’t really need to tell you, do I?
