I have heard many good arguments on either side of holding on or letting
go. I think I personally will always be sure and hold on to my horse, even
if he falls on me, tramples me, drags me off a cliff or etc., because as
was mentioned in a previous post - I am responsible for my horse.
I would MUCH rather suffer with broken bones, etc., rather than have to
think about that my horse caused someone else to get hurt. I would rather
suffer physically than be tormented with guilt. This is just my opinion

I used to dream of owning a flashy chesnut or bright bay, perhaps even a
shining black, but when my perfect horse came in a never-to-be-clean
white... I shrugged and realized the meaning of "A good horse is never a
bad color".
