The horse world and the corporate world aren’t that dissimilar, if you think about it.
Shoveling manure = cleaning out your inbox.
No chaps so you improvise with polo wraps = ingenuity when the printer breaks 10 minutes before a presentation so you throw together a slideshow.
Learning to deal with the snappy mare = learning to work with the saucy front desk lady.
Getting bucked off and getting back on = Messing up a project, but dusting it off and making it better.
Screwing up a course = accidentally sending a meme to your boss’s email.
Coaxing your horse around a “scary” object = clearly communicating to your coworkers that you are not all fired.
Knowing the herd pecking order = knowing the office pecking order (lead mare, stupid gelding, wily pony – they all exist in the office).
Your horse spooks in the trailer = being able to keep a calm head while working on a tight deadline.
Sewing your horse’s ripped blanket for the 15th time = patching up another lackluster report to make it stellar.
Spending all your money on horses = you are so prepared to live off a small income.
