My dream is to ride Zum on beautiful trails in the deserts of Arizona and in the mountains of New Mexico. When I first bought Zum in August of 2018, I wanted to offer the best of myself to Zum and see if he could offer the best of himself to me. Negative trainers along the way traumatized Zum and told me Zum is naughty and disrespectful. It feels like my original idea to train Zum with love and reward may fail. Zum doesn’t like humans very much and I am a human. My girlfriend in Santa Fe thinks I should sell Zum. Zum has his good days and his bad days. On his bad days, I am very discouraged. But I am trying to make every failure with Zum into a steppingstone to success. Instead of telling myself that I have failed with Zum, I am trying to remember that I haven’t yet succeeded.
