    Riding is boring to me because there's nowhere to go except my back yard. I'd ride every day if there were trails, but there aren't any. At least not within riding distance.

    Now, my horses never get old. I still get that fluttery feeling every time I see them, just like the first time I laid eyes on them. They take my breath away every time.

    Sometimes it does to be honest. I have no desire to ride on the hottest or coldest of days, but when I was a teen, I didn't care and just lived to ride. Now on the days that I don't want to, I don't.

    When I was on interschool with a really strict, mean coach, I started dreading my lessons. She knew what boundaries we (her students) had and would fish out every weakness with our riding. Which is a good thing, but she was very mean about telling us what we weren't good at, and would belittle us if we felt uncomfortable doing something. She made me cry one time when I fell off a 17hh horse was finally back in work after probably a year sitting in the field. She made me feel like a horrible rider, and even told me I shouldn't be at the level I was at and threatened to bump me down to 2'.

    Riding with her made me HATE riding. But as soon as I left, it was great again. And, in hindsight -even if her tactics were not great- she did get me to overcome a lot of problems I had.

    I have been riding since I was very little and to this day, I still love it.
