I, also, am a junior, and I own one horse (Mudpie) and am currently caring for and riding another horse (Rio). I am taking an AP English Class, a math class, a science class, a history class, a publishing class, and a music production class. Mudpie lives at a barn that's about 5-7 miles away from my house. I ride the bus, walk home, walk to the barn. I ride every night for about 30 minutes to 1.5 hours per horse. Because it is a co-op barn, I do all the feeding and cleaning myself.
It's hard work, for sure, but it's really helped me learn time management. I'll frequently try to do as much work at school as I can, and then finish it at home. I've also learned to keep care/expense records, etc. :)
The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
– I love you, Mudpie!
