Anyone else who hasn't ridden in a while?

Well, I'm back at uni and launched back into lectures. It's nearly two weeks since I've been near a horse and it feels like longer!

I'm going home this weekend as it's my birthday on the fourteenth, and Mum's promised to hook me up with a lesson at my stables back home. Group or private, I don't care, I just want to ride xD

The taster/assessment session for the riding and polo club is on the fifteenth. I'll get about twenty minutes riding, if that. It's a taster session for people who've never ridden before and will be used to group people for lessons; team trials have already taken place and team practices are at a different stables. I don't know what this place will be like or anything but I hope it's good :)

I really miss my riding. The closest I've got has been my housemates chucking my riding crop around going, "Ooh, Claire's kinky! She's got whips under her bed!"

How are you doing, those of you who aren't able to ride right now?

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

i've been limited to riding 1x per week due to school....but i get to see my guys everyday, so i guess that isn't fair...I don't know what I would do if i couldn't ride or SEE them!

Well, I did ride last weekend, but before that I hadn't ridden since June. And I probably won't ride until December..
So I know what you´re going through ! My best advice is to find something that takes alot of time and still is related to horses, even if it's just in the faintest way. I for example am knitting a horse blanket, it keeps me sane

ps. Lol at your friends

They stopped mucking about after I started hitting the guys with it xD I've asked for a dressage whip from my best friend for my birthday, so we'll see what they think of that.

The only horse I've seen since the last Thursday in September is the horse that pulls a little carriage around Bath. It whizzed round a corner in front of me. That is the sum total of my equine encounters over the past thirteen days. D:

When we moved into the house, some friends helped us. One kinda nerdy guy had the pleasure of handling my riding crop. :roll: I probably should have let him envy my husband, but I told him that I took lessons and we each had to have our own.

Anyway, I've been away from horses for several years now, so I'd been attending equestrian events, hanging out on horse sites (I don't know why I didn't find this place before) and now that I'm getting my strength back up, I've been grooming. It'll still be a while before I ride, but I wasn't the most confident rider back in the day.

Happy early birthday

I only ride once a week, hopefully that'll change soon as I was promised extra riding time. When I dont ride, I tend to start horse shopping lol, so it actually benefits me and my husband when I do get a chance to ride.

I myself am doing ok :) I had hip reconstruction last summer which meant I didnt ride for a year (Dr's orders) then I had my other hip done this summer so no riding for another year (again Dr's orders) but have 2 more ortho surgeries (one in a few hours) so who knows if I will be allowed to start riding by this summer I think I should post something actually.


so yea, good thing I have 2 babies because that's is keeping me afloat.
