Unhappy farm chores leave me too exhausted to ride.

I shoveled 12 wheelbarrow loads of poop today, and set up my arena. After working with my three year old on ground work I am too tired to ride my older broke horse. I need to find some twelve year old horse crazed slave girl to help with chores in exchange for pony time! I'm inside taking a break hoping my strength returns. It was the first warm day of spring you could actually almost watch the grass grow. I think I just over did it.

I know the feeling. For a time when I was out of work I was able to make a deal with my trainer/barn owner and work off my whole board by cleaning stalls and other odd chores that needed to be done. I think I only rode a handful of times during that time only on the days that I didn't have stall duty.

It will get easier! The snow just melted so there is a lot of clean up to do. At least I only have three horses. Once I catch up I on spring cleaning I will have more time.

Find some 12 yr old slave girl and pay her 5 bucks an hour or let her ride an old, easy-going horse. You'll make her YEAR! And maybe, just maybe, she'll end up going to school for Equine Science and be typing on a horse forum similar to this one someday because of your influence. :)

Ali that would be wonderful. I live in a very rural area. I'd gladly pay or let her ride my sweet old gelding. Maybe someday. I know if the twelve year old me was living down the road my parents would never see me:)

I'd have killed for that opportunity as a twelve year old! I grew up on a pony stud and as a result only ever had ponies to ride, at 12, I was growing a lot and all my friends were getting bigger horses. I was bought a few young horses to break in, but none turned out to be "suitable" once we got them home, and they were re-sold. I finally got to work a stock horse mare at 17, and later a standardbred mare from someone because they were starting a family and didn't have the time. I was in year 12 and didn't have much time either, so for my proficiency certificates they just weren't fit enough and I had to resort back to my pony. I looked ridiculous, but I passed lol!
