Run your own race....
Do you know what the straps on the right are?? They are the first magnetic pastern wraps I had in the 90s. My dad researched the benefits of magnetic therapy and made them for my horse. (He also made my very first magnetic blanket) We used what resources we had to save money, which left more money to enter races... I always encourage people to not be defeated if you can't afford XYZ brand... To be honest sometimes those brands aren't better, you're paying for the name and who they sponsor... Take these magnetic wraps for instance, the magnets in the came from the same wholesaler as the top brands at the time (Dad did his research).
Don't get me wrong, I love being able to step up to the next big thing, and I love working my way up to the best money can buy... I might sell my husband before I'd go without my PEMF wraps 🤣.... I just want you to understand that if you break the bank from the beginning with everything everyone says you need... You have no money left to actually enter with. And most of us that appear to have a lot, probably bought their big equipment items a few at a time over several years. Don't feel like you have to have a certain brand to "keep up with the Joneses"... Don't feel like you have to go bankrupt for your horse to feel his best. You can always buy used, sell your starter stuff, and trade up.... Your horse will appreciate all your efforts. Learn your most important needs and save your money until you get it!
P.S. This why I Love being able to do the random Draw posts that we do. I understand what it's like to be on a budget. I understand what it's like to start at the bottom. I understand what it's like to be a rookie. This is my way of giving back and presenting a chance to win something someone could not otherwise afford. I try to give back all that I can to the industry, because I want everyone to have the same love for it that I do.
Here's your #motivationmonday post... I encourage you to reach out and encourage someone else. Be an inspiration!
