So I had to put lessons on hold for awhile, probably until the spring. Money is super tight and I can't afford the lessons or all the things that go with it. I feel pretty darn low and depressed about it. I can still trail ride here and there, but it's not the same as the challenging, adrenaline-filled reining lessons I am used to. I have a horse of my own, but he's very green and will need a lot of work before I can ride him. I'm thinking he'll be my "project" while I can't ride, but I'll still miss it.
Has anyone else here had to stop taking lessons for a bit due to the economy? What did you do?
