The championship comes and goes, but the the day-to-day is what you have to learn to enjoy.

— Anna Buffini

“I know for a fact that I would not be the level rider I am without the workouts I do. If you don’t workout, it doesn’t give you the empathy for the horse that you workout everyday. Sometimes if I’m doing piaffe for a long time and my horse is fatigued and breathing hard, I’m like ‘ok I did a bunch of squats yesterday, I know how you feel’ and I give him a walk break.”

“I’ll never forget the feeling of trying a horse like [Sundayboy]. I would just sit in his stall for hours and sing to him and brush and groom him until he knew me. We were best friends and we trusted each other which I think helped us be as successful as we were together.”
