Right now we are waiting on a saddle to even start riding my new boy. He was way too skinny when we first got him, and he had some rain rot I've been working on getting rid of. Since he turned out to be younger and more energetic than we thought he would be when he was given to us, we've been joking about how Ezra may end up being my husbands to ride.
But even if he ends up as a pasture puff, my husband knew going in that we were getting a horse, so I could have a horse, not just so I could ride. So I don't expect him to hassle me about not riding enough.
He did express a concern that I was spending too much time with the horse and not enough time washing dishes at one point, though
