This summer has not been "normal". Both horses have been "pasture ponies" due to circumstances beyond my control.
However, I am now able to ride, and will begin 3 times a week for 30 to 45 mins each time per horse.
Am at the mercy of the weather (no indoor) and have decided I don't like wet saddles. But, I do have rain gear and synthetic saddles if needed, so if it's not a down pour, can still ride.
You guys have been so inspiring to me to get back to my old schedule and push myself. I ride alone and sometimes it's easy to just give in to an excuse and not ride. Thanks for making me feel that even though I'm alone, I 'm really not.
