The stupid thing is I will probably saddle up tomorrow and head out again. I am an addict and I can't help it. If I have a day off, even a nice evening I have HAVE to head out.
In a barn of 25 boarders many a week I was the only one leaving the barn. At times I would throw my saddle over his heavy winter blanket and head out in a blizzard just to be out.
I know it is nuts but again I am an addict and I will do anything for a fix.
I have never had a spooky horse, one that wouldn't just head out into anything.
As for trees falling?? I have had to wait in places for the sway of the tree to go the other way and then quickly pass by. I have been nearly hit once but have been close when a few trees fell to storms.
I can only think of one other time in the last year that weather kept me from riding and that was only because I had ridden him 6 days in a row and I thought he could use the break.
