Well when ever I go for a period of time not riding my horses, I kind of loss interest too, But I have friends that kick me in the butt and drag me out on the trail. Before I know it I'm loving it more than ever and falling more in love with my horses. Maybe if you have a friend to go with you?? Just don't rush into doing something you might regret. Riding is my therapy, maybe you just need a little riding therapy...
Good luck in what ever you decide.

rum, do you have a regular riding partner? I don't mean a spouse but a friend. It makes all the difference. When you have someone else who will give you a call during the week and make plans were to ride on the weekend, it will change your perception.

I have time during the week on Tuesday and Thursday morning before work but don't ride often enough because there are other things that seem to pop up. When it comes to the weekends, I have some riding partners that we make plans with over pizza on Thursday nights as to where and what time - it makes a difference.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Is an excellent point made. While I never lost interest, even riding alone, a riding partner having someone to ride with (even a spouse can serve that function.....did it actaully say that? :)) ) can make a huge difference and make rides more enjoyable (most of the time....guess it depends on the spouse :)) )

Of course things happen and even I gave up my horses because things that prevented me from being able to ride and take care of them. Had to put the horses first and they can go sour if left unridden or worked for a long time.

Seems like you have a plan though, so that's the first step :)

The fall and winter can be hard to sell horses because that is when everyone is off loading the ones they don't want to feed over the winter. Spring tends to be the best time to sell. If they were mine I would hold off and see how I felt come Feb-March and if I still had no interest in them, then I would start looking for homes.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
