You are almost asleep and you 'dream' that a horse is going to swing their head over yours (when they 'just don't quite' clear your head). You wake up when your knuckles hit the wall beside your bed as you were blocking the horse.
LOL! I had bruised knuckles for a few days.

When you are going to visit and stay in a big mall (hotel off the side) for two days and you are more excited about being able to got to the tack store that is not in or near the mall. I haven't been in a tack shop since November! This is going to be so fun! I get to buy stuff too!

My reason: I have a hard enough time keeping my heels down while riding, I wasn't building up more muscle to point my toes!

My bf has trained me to move off of slight pressure on my hip to move out of his way. I'm not sure when, just realized it a couple days ago. I called him out on it he tells me I respond better to pressure and body position than "real" words. Apparently being doing this for almost a year now
It also took him about 2 years to teach me to not cluck, kiss, or jab him with my elbow when he stepped into my bubble. The elbows he sometimes deal with, but clucking and kissing are just never going to fly haha

When you cluck/kiss at everything to get it moving! (My horse friends always complain that ___ is not a horse, but I can't help it).

When you miss the barn, you find the coat you wear to the barn and just inhale barn scent :).

When you're talking to a horse person in front of other people and the other people look totally mystified.

When someone expresses interest in riding, you have to hold yourself back from ranting about how amazing riding is.

You have to recommend riding to every single one of your non-horsey friends.

When you get bored in school, you think about riding.

Every exercise is to better your riding.

Some people are horsemen or horsewomen and some people are just riders....

You get bucked off, get concussion, and all you can think of is that you can't wait to get back on that dang horse [once the 3 days you're not allowed to ride have passed] and work its butt so hard it never thinks of misbehaving EVER again.
