Getting back into the saddle:)
I dont know what happened for sure, but I lost interest in riding for about a year. I think it was because I had fallen off 4 times in less than 2 years and I became scared to ride. I then went through depression from January 2013-May 2013. I was all good for a month and a half and then I realized that I haven't ridden my gelding in over a year like actually ridden him. Today I also had a small break down, which made me feel back since I was doing so good. So today I went outside and finally rode him, it was only for a short time just because he needs to get muscle back and I didn't want to rush him since he had not been ridden in over a year. It went really good! I was surprised at how well he did for being off for so long. So I am going to get back in the saddle and hope for the best:)

If for some reason I am not on here updating, someone should comment and get me back on here telling me to update and ride. If I have someone to make me do it, I will for sure do it!

Rode monday: Just walking

Tuesday: I put all of his tack on (saddle, breastcoller, back cinch, hackamore) Which he has only been ridden in halter, sidepull, and a snaffle bit. I was a little nervous but had all the tack on cause I planned on trotting him. He did so good!! He remembered it so well:)
