Had a an absolutely wonderful ride today! I hadn't been in 2 weeks, and of course Miss Suzie decided to see if I still meant what I said the last time, lol! She started off at a trot, and we were both distracted somewhat(a yearling, a 2 year, and a 3 year old in the next pasture playing and wrestling makes it hard to concentrate, I was laughing so hard at times, Suzie kept looking back at me to make sure I was okay!) but once she could tell that I was in charge she did beautifully!
Next Tuesday I am going to take a lesson on the mare that my RI thinks I should lease. The owner really does not want to sell her yet, and as long as she likes me, and the Mare and I work together, she will wait until I am ready. I'm excited and nervous, and wondering how in the world I can afford this right now!
Because I am only working part time, I don't think I could do it right now. However, the very strange thing was, I had to work right after my lesson, and my boss was telling me that because of some changes coming about, I will most likely get a raise, and some more hours! So we shall see if this is all meant to be or not. At the very least if the mare doesn't work out, I will be able to save money a lot quicker! :)
Oh, and did I mention that the mare is a Sorrel Overo Paint, my very favorite since I was about 7 years old??!!!
