    Yeah, she's obviously ignoring the thread, because she's been posting elsewhere on the forum.

    I had a lesson one day when it began to rain, so I called to see if it was still a go. The trainer said, 'ABSOLUTLY! Rain or shine!' it wasn't a hard rain, and I was exited to ride, if she was willing to teach. Was she perhaps there waiting for you that first day?

    Agreed. The majority of my time with my horses is spent NOT riding. I find it very relaxing to just hang out with them. It also helps with bonding, since they don't always have to work when they see me.

    Yup, nothing like some bonding time to make riding that much better later on. I haven't ridden more than 3 times since early July, too darn hot. I have, however, been having totes of fun playing in the post-rain puddles with Indie, going on hand walks for grazing in unfenced areas, working on "spooky" things like rubber balls being tossed in their direction, and even just sitting in the shade and reading a book to keep company with my fuzzy companions.

    Riding is a small portion of the companionship a horse offers in the big scheme of things.

    I've only ridden my new horse about 3 times in the month or so I've had him. Just yesterday he let me walk up to him and pet his face without running away like he always does. I was so happy!! Nothing better than having a breakthrough with your ponies

    The last time I rode was a few months ago! (Thank you terrible weather and ground that turns to slush when someone so much as says rain). And yet I'm interacting with my horses every single day in some way or another and I am quite content.

    I'm with the last few posts. I havent ridden more than 3 times since April. It hasnt stopped raining since then and the only places I have to ride are under water... add ontop of that a 1year baby and that's me fairly snookered!. I'm still out with my boys twice a day, every day without fail. Even if I'm under pressure with the baby in the car, I still manage to give them both two minutes of my time for a scratch and a chat.

    A horse is not a bike that you pull out of the shed whenever you want to ride it.

    OP - I don't want you to feel "ganged up on" as that was not the intention of my initial post. Quite possibly you didn't mean the post to come out the way it did, but I'm just a bit suprised that you haven't responded at all.
