Well, tomorrow afternoon I have get back in the saddle after a break of 25 years and I'm not afraid to admit that i'm terrified and oddly excited!
We have a 15 yr old mare who's had a foal 3 months ago and hubby said she's too big an animal to have as a "pet" and I need to start riding her. To be honest, I know he's right as when my son's have ridden her, she get's a spring in her step and comes alive but now it's my turn!
I won't be riding her for quite a while (not until i've gone through everything I used to be able to do - canter,gallop etc and a bit of jumping although I didn't particularly care for that) but the closer tomorrow comes, the more nervous I get.
I'm going to a local riding school so I know their horses will be virtually bombproof, then i'll be taking lessons on Fox (but i'm in no hurry there as I need to feel confident just riding firstly).
So wish me luck and any tips will be welcome.
Why oh why did I stop riding when I got my car.................
