I didn't ride yesterday because my boyfriend begged me to go paintballing with him and, like the good girlfriend I am (despite what his mother says), I dragged my fat butt out there and participated.

No excuses for me today. I'm getting my sorry butt out there today no matter what! It's absolutely gorgeous out.

I'm riding today, but not my horse. DH just asked if I would accompany him whilst he goes running on my bike. No time to do both after work.

I'm not riding today because I was cleaning my house for my mom to visit. And we are just starting my girl so I like having my husband out with me. Tomorrow is game on though!

^ See bolded remarks from yesterday that apply today and will probably be applicable for the remainder of the month at this rate.

Well I did ride and regretted it because its so windy stuff was blowing everywhere and stupid horses are still a bit sharp after their winter break and every spook was an excuse to ping around the ménage or have a bucking fit - all my good intentions at the start to ride a few times a week just fizzled out.
Not sure which bit of me now aches the most
Cant believe that we already have blackfly around
Oh the joys of life in CT

My horse is injured, a tad lame. Didn't even see him this weekend! Instead I went and helped teach calves to suck an udder. and we started work on cleaning the dank wet barn. Ugh snow.

Spring *might* appear.. looks like warmer temps are thinking about arriving.

It's sort of refreshing to know I'm not the only one who doesn't get to ride as much as I would like. It seems like all winter I was spending my riding time getting hay for my horses. I was determined to ride this weekend in the beautiful spring weather, and of course, I had an allergy/asthma attack. It seems like there's always some lame excuse.

Ha! I'm with you! My boy gets ridden at least 4-5 days a week. Trainer & riding buddy are gone all week, so I figure we can be lazy.
I'm meeting them at the Nat'l Reining Breeders Cup show this weekend, so my boy had better be ready for when I get back and am all excited after watching those guys ride!

Besides, I rarely ever get laundry folded right out of the dryer due to riding all of the time!
