Ok, I have two horses. One mare that is 21 and broke and one that is going to be 2 in April, 2011. I haven't ridden my mare since summer and that was maybe two or three times. I feel bad and can come up with so many excuses, but I think it boils down to pure Laziness!
Every morning I wake up and say today is the day I will either ride or work the filly. And when it comes down to it, I go out there and find some excuse to not do it.
What is wrong with me? I love my girls, especially my mare. I always think to myself that she is part human and will break if I ride her to much. Now that she's older. I worry about the weather now being so cold and if I ride she may sweat and get sick from the chills. I never worried about that when I first got her. Rode in the rain, the snow and the wind. Didn't care. Is it because I'm getting older? I've had her for close to eleven yrs. I'm going to be 40 next year. She's healthy and shows no signs of arthritis. She's back to a good weight. Have any of you gone through this?
I'm hoping to get my act together as next spring I will need to be consistent so I can start training my filly. My mare will be my number one help so she will get used a lot.
