I didn't ride today because mind your own business!
I did actually ride today. But a lot of my excuses are because "its cold" or "I don't have gas to get to the barn". Which, in my opinion, translates to "I didn't want to, buzz off".
A legit excuse is "I have my daughter". I rarely go to the barn when she's with me, I'd rather spend that time with her, not my horse. I will be re-enrolling her in lessons soon though so I can go to the barn when I have her and we'll still be together.
And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music
