The riding bug has finally bitten him!!
After being with my husband for 8 years, 6 of those years being married, he is finally showing interest in riding!!! He has always been my stable boy. Doesn't mind to go out and feed, willingly bails thousands of bails of hay, mucks stalls, and grooms away. But he has really never shown any interest in riding until know. He would always say, "ya, you can teach me some day." But yesterday, he said he would really like to start riding, and he would love to go trail riding with me. I am so excited. He really likes my new thoroughbred (who is as lazy as the day is long), so I think that is what is sparking his interest. I really didn't have anything that he could ride until recently. My old show gelding has arthritous (sp?) issues, so we couldn't ride him, and all of my parents horses were just too green. He is very confindent around horses, and can handle them well on the ground. It will be interesting to see how he does. But, if I can teach a 5 year old to ride, I can certainly teach a 30 yr old man, can't I? Hahahaha!!
