Confession Time

Today I rode my horse for the first time in a little over a year. Well, more like putting around for about 15 minutes but better than I had been doing. I'm trying to find my "want to" again. I don't know where or why it went away but I'd like it back.

The good news is TJ deserves a gold medal for not forgetting his manners in the past year and I wasn't rusty enough to fall off even though I was bareback. The bad news is I WAS rusty enough that it put my hip in a bind that took a while to walk off. (I need a smiley that shows a little old woman walking with a cane LOL)

If anybody else has something they need to get off their chest please feel free to share it here.

R.I.P. JC 5/19/85 - 12/9/14. You made my life better.

I too buy too much horse stuff.

I find myself when it comes to riding, overwhelmed. Between the heavy saddle and the issue with bridling, I almost don't want to ride. I'm trying to work through it though.

Proud of you for literally getting back on the horse! And bareback no less. :)

I bought a new western felt hat the day before meeting with my accountant for a budget session.

(Does it help that it was 20% off? She wasn't impressed.)

GO wash your mouth out, no such condition exists.

I confess, I have done NOTHING today, well apart from pony chores, making firewood and feeding people....NOTHING!

I'm getting sick and tired of being alone with my horse all the time, I can't find people to ride with, and feel like I am going to get no where I want to be always by myself with no one to help if needed. So much so that as much as I love having him, and spending time with him, and owning a horse, I nearly threw in the towel. There is only so many failures one person can take, can't get into lessons atm as the only ones I found won't start till April at the earliest. No groups Ive found in the area, none on FB, none on CL.. zilch

Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.

Thanks Werecat but I grew up riding bareback so I've always felt pretty comfortable without a saddle. Besides I figured if TJ bucked or my balance wasn't there I was better off not taking the chance of my mud boots getting stuck in the stirrup.

Best of luck working through your issues. It will get easier as you get more practice at it.

Boots, some folks just have no appreciation for a good hat. What crease does it have and what color did you go with?

Thanks for supplying the smiley I wanted Golden Horse. I wasn't on his back long enough for my knee to act up but I totally feel ya.
