As some of you know I have been cleaning barn and doing chores 3-4 times a week where I board. But I have only ridden like 2 times in the last 2.5 months!!! It is killing me (not really, but you know what I mean). The days I go up I leave work at 2:45 and then get up there at 3:30-3:45 (depends on traffic) and by 5 it is totally dark.
The problem is a lot of the times my horse and hers doesnt get out of the barn unless I let them out. Her husband is scared of the horses and she isnt suppose to be in or around the barn (because of chemo) So I have to turn the horses out for exercise and then it doesnt allow me to ride.
While they are turned out, I clean the stalls and feed the other horses (that are always outside). It is just really frusterating. Im hoping to ride this weekend but we will have to see how the weather is.
