    I can only imagine... Now I'm definitely changing to night lessons, so I don't miss again.

    Speaking from a mother's point of view: First of all you can't get mad at your mother for YOU oversleeping. When you have something important to do, get to bed early so you will wake up early. You will feel much better throughout the day (sorry, it's the mother in me....I couldn't resist). Secondly, I'm sorry you have had to miss so many lessons. I know how disappointing it can be to miss something you are looking forward too. It sounds like your mother is very supportive of your riding though, which is great! I'm glad to hear that your father is ok too...must have been scary.

    Ah, I know how you feel. :( At my old barn, the lessons were held outside, so if it rained, they were either cancelled, or we had to have a verbal lesson (no riding nvolved!) in the stables. It was so boring, LOL. :P Now at the place I ride we have an indoor arena.

    Anyway, I understand your frustration- but I agree, if night lessons are an option, I'd take 'em! Or get an alarm for yourself.

    This alarm clock was invented by a college student who had trouble getting up. It rolls away and hides (while beeping annoyingly) if you don't get up after the first 2 snoozes. Sounds like it might be just the thing for you.

    Horses are just about the only thing for which I will happily get up at 6am, and that includes paying jobs. If you like it enough, you will find a way to wake up. :)

    Yes, it apparently has a YouTube following...mostly videos of Clocky meeting the dog/cat/action toy etc. Probably best not to introduce it to the horsies.

    I know how you feel. Its been raining every afternoon here and I give novice lessons and have to cancel, but also its just too darn hot and buggy some days. However I really hate it when my students don't show or are really late and usually its their parents fault, not theirs. Its very aggravating. Humidity is actually less in the afternoon so hopefully that will solve the getting up late problem and maybe it will be a little cooler. (doubtful and of course more chance for rain here in the south)

    They cancel your lesson if it rains? At my stable we'll ride in the pouring rain if we have to! I suppose that comes with living in england,if they canceled the lessons when it rains id hardly ever ride!
