I agree with the 40 thing...I'm glad I'm in this stage of my life,
CCG, hope I didn't offend with the DH comment...didn't mean to insinuate he was lazy....but I WILL say my moms DH IS!
so would she!!! LOL
Speaking of 'older'...there is a girl at work that is also into horses. We've gone ridding a couple,times together, and I like to beat her ear about them.....I feel as if I bore her with my talk...sigh....I can't understand why she doesn't enjoy the convo as much as I do!?!?!
Sometimes when we talk, I get a funny feeling about her...and I think I finally figured it out today....I knew she took some girls she instructs to a show this weekend. So I inquired how they did. She said one placed 3rd....and like always I had to prod for an answer...what in? Horsemanship....hmmm I'm kinda thinking it's something like showmanship, but ask for clarification.....her demeanor says...you won't really understand, but says, it's where they judge the rider. Oh, I say, equitation.... Well it's like English equitation where they judge the rider, she says, but it's called horsemanship. Humph, I have to make a comment, so I say, Oh, well..in the 'olden' days, they called that western equitation. (At this time I am getting a bit miffed bc I get it now....she thinks I am ignorant! So, I have to be honest, I got a bit snooty, and made a comment that was my class, and I went to states in it!
I sound like such a little girl....but It bothers me to think she thinks I don't know anything. Yes, I've been out of the circuit for a while....but I was riding and competing before she was even BORN!!!! I DO know a thing or two...not all, but dang it...I was GOOD. And I guess that is what irks me the most...she doesn't take me seriously....and I WAS good in my day! DH works with younger people too....we both have found many youngin's don't give us a chance!
Anyone else get this? Sorry for the rant...it's just something that eats at me from time to time....as this isn't the first time she's made me feel less than adequate in the horse world.....and now I think I have at least this bit figured out.....but she's an enigma....
Hunter, love the looks of the saddle and Scotty is just so pretty!!!!
Back to freezing temps again. Single digits starting tomorrow night....BOO
