"The worst nightmare would be not to achieve what I know I’m capable of."
"I need to ride. I don’t just like to ride, love to ride, enjoy riding. But I need to ride. If I don’t ride, I become depressed, agitated, grumpy, annoyed, short-tempered. Riding is my personal psychiatrist, my way of relieving stress and everything calms down when I ride. My brain quiets, all of the issues I have in my life cease to exist for that hour or two that I sit in my saddle atop my favorite animal in my life. Riding isn’t a want, it’s a necessity."
"Because this is my life. And that’s the only explanation you will ever need."
"Time goes faster the more hollow it is. Lives with no meaning go straight past you, like trains that don’t stop at your station."
"In the end, what really matters? Only kindness. Only making somebody a little happier for your presence."
