This is pathetic... Horse withdrawal?

Okay so every weekend I help out at the barn and ride and it's great because I do it with my friend. I also ride in the week, but because of conflicts I can't go to the barn this week, at all. I won't be going until next Saturday and I am already missing the ponies like crazy!! What am I going to do?? All I can think about is horses and the only time I don't wish I was at the barn is when I'm already at the barn!!! I know no one can help with this but I just needed to get it out of my mouth...

Just to let you know, it has no cure and won't go away, even when you are older, like me. Give up now, it's hopeless!

My three horses are at home and when I spend the night somewhere I get it too. Or if I leave without seeing them I feel lost. Haha.

Take a break from horses? Why? Or, maybe more important, How? My boy is boarded 7 miles from my house. It is a 15 minute drive...23 if I time it wrong and go when the school buses are on the road. My car could probably drive itself there at this point. I'm either getting ready to ride, or I'm riding, or I've just finished riding...or I'm thinking about the next time I'm going to go riding. Or, maybe, it's one of Huey's Vacation Days and I'm just grooming him and playing around a bit.

:)

It doesn't go away. "Horsie" was one of the first words I learned. I spent my teenage years as a barn rat. Then I spent 20 years taking trail rides now and then because I did not have enough time or money to ride for real. Every time I went on a trail ride, I fell right off the wagon and had to go through Horse Withdrawal again, every single time.

Now I have Huey. I do not go to see him every day, but on the days that I do not go to see him, I miss him.

Good luck "taking a break". Hahahahahah If your family is not Horse People, and I know they are not because if they were they would not be talking any nonsense about "taking a break" - they will probably not ever really understand this. Closest thing is they will come to understand that things are *different* for you, and accept that. But no, they won't understand it properly.

Lol I love your fabulous rant!!! But what my family meant is, maybe it's good you're not going for a week, ummm no it's not!! I'm practically dying without riding this week, literally counting down the hours until Saturday and watching billions of horse videos on YouTube!! If I took a 'break' any longer then a week... I would go insane!! (and run out of videos on YouTube!!)

You have a horse addiction. No worries, it's a healthy, albeit, expensive addiction. You might try cutting down a bit & only visiting mini horses & ponies.
