I just noticed something funny. Before I got a horse, I was desperate to ride any horse. We'd ask friends from church, or people we knew who owned horses if I could exercise their horses or groom or whatever, but no one ever wanted me to come over, or they didn't need the help. Once it seemed like someone wanted me to half-lease their horse, but it didn't work out.
Now, ever since I got my horse in June, I've gotten these oportunities to ride other people's horses. One of my "aunties" from church had a party at her house then let me ride one of their horses and said I could come out whever to ride because their horses barely get ridden. And this Sunday another aunty came to talk to me and she wants me to see if I can come over and ride one of her horses because he needs the exercise.
I'm so overjoyed to have these opportunities, but maybe they could have asked when I actually had the time? :P I think it's a good introduction to the western world of riding, though. I've always wanted to learn how to at least tack up with western tack and now I'll get the chance. It's just hard since I still have to rely on my mom to drive me everywhere since I don't have my driver's license. But I'm excited anyways!
I just wanted to... ramble I guess. Anyone else have random offers to ride horses? I love it, hehe.
