Almost 5 months for me and another 5 to go!! Sold my competition gelding so I could focus on finishing off my studies. Spending 12+ contact hours at the academy plus more at home and having to keep my fitness up. Surviving off 4-5 hours sleep/night. Definitely not enough hours in the day to be riding as well do even though I miss it, I'm too busy to have withdrawals!!!!!
On the plus side my 'baby' will be 3 in October, off to the breakers in December so I can just hop on and enjoy at the end if Jan when I'm 'free' Posted via Mobile Device
