At what point do you quit trying with your horse? When do you say “Enough! He needs to stay at Second Level forever!”
(“The first two were short on harmony.”)
(“Sometimes it’s downright shocking . . . “)

(“What ARE you doing out there?”)
(“. . . how unfair that is!”)
(“It isn’t even their idea to be ridden in the first place . . .”)
(“Be sure you have created a ‘vessel’”)

(“Y’all just take little steps!”)
