Just replied to your other thread.

Yes, that is a tiny, tiny ring. Still, you could set up an obstacle or two or three. Do something different every night. Learn to do mounted archery! It sounds to me like you just need to find something new to do with your horse because you have both gotten bored of doing the same old same old.

Or you just need a break from riding. Nothing wrong with that. You say you have lost your motivation for doing anything... that sounds like more than just being bored of riding or dealing with a challenging horse. It might be time to do some soul-searching to find your groove again. What do you want out of life? What are your goals? How are you taking concrete steps to achieve them? This sounds deeper than just an issue with your horse.

Not sure how old you are, but if you're still young and trying to figure out a career, this feeling is pretty normal. I think many of us have been there. Setting goals is important to feel like you're moving ahead. It sounds like you're working towards a career so that's a good goal on which to focus for now. I spent years studying for my career and during that time, I couldn't have horses (no money, no time). I have no regrets. I had two kids, built a career. As a mature adult, I have the means to have horses in the way I want and I love every minute of it. There are different phases in life when you might be more or less involved with horses and that's perfectly ok.
