I work full-time with 2+hrs a day in commute and occasional evening/weekend work, cart my 14yr old to sports practice before & after school and attend evening games while making sure he gets enough sleep & healthy food, try to keep my house from becoming disgusting, make sure the yard gets mowed, and somehow also find time to eat and sleep and have clean laundry. That leaves zero motivation to go out in 100°F while carrying my heavy western saddle from house to barn, to groom a sweaty horse, heft said heavy saddle up, put on my breathable-but-still-hot helmet, ride a heat-radiating horse under the unrelenting Texas sun, and then attempt to cool him back down without passing out from heat exhaustion myself. I haven't ridden since May, and probably won't bother until October.
Life goes through stages. My current stage is seeing my horses grazing in my pasture and calling that enough.
