Ok, so hereís the deal. Here in Iceland we have these things called Knapamerki 1-5, that are basically just horse ďcoursesĒ. In some upper secondary schools you can take them and get credit for (not in mine though ) Anyway, Iíve been thinking about taking the first one, but Iím just not sure about it. My main reasons are
a) I would probably be older than everyone else. The first step is usually taken by people a year or two younger than me. And I consider myself a mature girl. I find myself more comfortable with people older than me. That was one of the reasons I graduated a year early, I just donít fit in anymore with people my age.
b) I would only have had my horse with me for a month. She has not been ridden for almost a year. I donít think she will be fit enough for it, and I myself will be a bit rusty.
c) My school requires a lot of time, so I donít know if I could handle the pressure of nearing the final exams both in my school and in this.
d) I donít really want to go. I just donít find it very exciting or anything. I donít want to take exams on the horse.
But there are reasons to go. I don't know how much I would learn since I was doing this all last year ( I took a look at the agenda).
And it wouldnít cost anything since the city grants every kid under 18 40 000 isk (570 bucks on a normal exchange rate) to use for their hobby (have to buy some kind of course, or training expenses or something like that). I just donít knowÖ
