Turn Around a CRAPPY day.

The last couple of weeks have really sucked in terms of being busy, changes in our personal and business lives and just general overall stress. I have a GREAT family and home life and they have been awesome but every night my daughter and I go out to the barn where we board our horses and we ride for 2-3 hours. We are legging our horses up for a big 150 mile wagon train near the end of the summer so much of the time is spent loping (and on my charging little Rocky...galloping ) and what a rush. There is nothing better to fix a crappy, stressful day than to ride with one of your kids for a couple of hours, concentrate on your horse, and work on improving your riding skills and your horses performance.

The coolest thing is we have decided to home school our daughter for her 8th grade year and my wife is now working with me in our home business so we have incorporated the horses into my daughters home schooling plans so we HAVE to be out there as much as possible as it is part of her school work. I have a feeling my crappy days will get less crappy soon! So the old saying holds true..."There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man" Oh and..."A good canter is a cure for every evil".

Share your days where your horses have turned your mood around. Does your therapist live in a barn? :)
