riding withdrawls

Ugh its been about a month since I sold chrome and while I am happy with where he went I seriously miss riding. I know it was for the better not to take my trainer up on her offer for sugar who I loved and got along with so well. I just couldn't justify buying another horse when I had put pretty much all my money into chrome and haven't been able to find a job. I babysit here and there and have applications everywhere along with going in daily to sign the books in both albertsons but I'm jsust not having any good luck. Chrome did go to an awesome home for a womana and her husband, at first they weren't sure because he is little but after riding him and taking him around the block where dogs lunged at him, we stopped to chat with a neighbor and chrome plowed over a knee height bush the husband decided he liked him a lot. They also were extremely surprised at how well behaved and trained he was for a 4yr old which made them want him even more. I do hope that in the next couple years I will be able to start again, it just sucks having to stop :/.

I know how you feel. I had to find home for my Arabian under less than desirable circumstances, and while I had been training and riding other horses, I took all of June off because I got married. After the honeymoon, we moved up north, and since we want to start a family soon, I can't justify getting another horse right now so I'm hoping that in a few years we can buy some horse property, and get a few horses again, raise our kids around horses, but I'm seriously missing the having my own horse, and going out to ride just to have fun.

Ya my boyfriends mom has horses and he wants us to get a couple eventually but I miss havin my own and just enjoying being around them. I've had it so hard having horses pulled from me and dealing with less then ideal owners/ barn owners, all I want is to happily own a horse. I haven't done that since my mom gave away my first 2 in 2005. It sucks but I try to stay optimistic about it.

No the two places that do lessons are mediocre and I don't enjoy lessons. I only took them before to better my horses training an my own. I couldn't justify spending my money on school horses just doing the basic walk/ trot/ canter with a little course of sort set up. I don't want to lease either as I've had too many horrible experiences in this town with leasing.
