Riding withdrawls

Ok, am I the only one who feels like riding is like an addiction where if you don't do it for a long time you get reeally withdrawled? I havent ridden in over 2 weeks because I have been away, but im starting to get extremely anxious. I don't know if middle age is just getting to me, or its actually a thing. LOL.

I am all depressed because the rain has us trapped indoors. The ground is so wet that footing is dangerous even if I didn't mind riding in the rain.

LOL! I let my horse rest today and I am already willing it to be tomorrow so I can climb up on his back. I also bought him a new halter, and I am anxious to see him in it. And I baked homemade horse treats that I know the whole barn would love.

SO yes, totally anxious to go out to the barn tomorrow!

Yes, a thousand times yes. I ride one time every 2 weeks. I am having serious withdrawls to where I pretend I'm riding in my sleep or spend a few hours watching old riding videos and crying silently (lol)

I have not been able to ride for 3 weeks due to health issue. It is bumming me so bad I find corners to cry in when no one is looking.

I will let you know tomorrow, but I'm betting it will be a hit.

1 shredded carrot
1 shredded apple
1 cup molasses
2 1/2 cup Oats

Stirred together and baked for 40 minutes at 350. Once cooled, cut into squares.

I added 12 crushed peppermints to the recipe since they are my horse's favorite.

Definitely not- my horse was on stall rest from a surgery for 6 MONTHS!! I was going absolutely mad, and now that we are back to riding I feel like I am on a super happy high, most days I go out twice a day to get my fix in :)

I'm getting that too! It's the most amazing sunny day outside and the ground's perfect for riding, but I'm stuck inside with ice because I've torn a ligament in my ankle. :( I swear the weather's teasing me!
