Come on CW - chucking a statement like "I found out something' and not telling is exceedingly unfair! How on earth will I be able to get to sleep wondering what?

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??!!!

That is wonderful CountryWoman! After all this time of waiting, can't wait to hear how your first ride is. Sounds like the saddle should work out, but if not, why don't you tell Belle's owner that for the time being, you'd love to volunteer and donate your time to working on the ground as you have been with Belle. Then once they provide the proper saddle, you would like to re-start up your lease? Hopefully it won't be an issue and the saddle you try Saturday will work.

Hey Chance and CoffeeMama! Very nice to meet you as well. I'm so glad I'm not alone at my age range and starting back up, Chance. You've been back to it for 3 years, me only 3 months. I have a lot to learn but am loving every moment of it and can't get enough horse time in!
I have only been back to it for 2 months Lost! Mid March, and it's been a struggle to get a lesson in each week with the weather, but like you I am loving every moment and long for the day I can spend every day with my own horse! :)
