Looking to Ride...Connecticut

Hello. This is a Leap but, I am Stationed in Groton CT because my husband is a submariner (Groton Subase) And my Horses are in Ohio!!! :( I actually havent ridden in OVER a year now because I am so far away and it costs so much to go home...OH but LET ME TELL YOU, I cannot go ANY longer! I want to ride SO bad, lol...Id prefer to ride my horses of course, but My life without a horse in it is empty to say the least...So Im looking to lease, or pay to ride or pay to go on a trail ride with you...heck Id pay to just sit on a horse at this point!! but im not made of money and leasing isnt cheap...ANY Advice??? Help!!

What about checking your area for trail rides? Like tourist stuff. Where you pay for a 1/2 hour ride. I know its not the same a riding your horse but at least you could ride one! That and pony rides at the circus popped into mind. j/k

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Sounds like you are having horse withdrawl. I think the best cure is looking for a stable or boarding facility in your area, introducing yourself to the owner and asking if there is anyone interested in doing a share or lease of a horse. Even just going and hanging out with the horses might help. Hope you find something, I think I would be feeling the same way in your shoes.

I'd look @ places in your area that do trail riding. Or take Dumas idea, go for a nice ride!!

Ride more, worry less.
