When experience becomes a rut.
A colleague of mine recently called the worn path around the outside of an arena the “idiot ditch”.
Perhaps somewhat harsh, but I had to chuckle. Riding the rut doesn’t stretch riders to make guiding adjustments or challenge our aids and timing, but it doesn’t involve risk ether
Doing the same thing over and expecting a different result may count as experience, but experience alone results in a rut. Some riders will continue to repeat their novice years, not for lack of talent, but for lack of evaluation.
An unexamined life is not worth living. Socrates.
