I despise the time change. It’s bad enough that 3pm feels like 6pm, but it has also pretty much obliterate the time I have to ride as well. With work all week, it’s been difficult to journey out to the barn for a lesson. I had one a couple of weeks ago and one thing that I’ve learned is that my mind and body needs to ride. I get such an immense amount of stress and anxiety relief from it, it’s amazing.
Plus, there’s been the holidays. Between family visiting, Thanksgiving and now Christmas, there just hasn’t been much time to do anything. Plus, we have 4 acres of leaves to pick up! The joy having moving to somewhere that has trees! (Do you sense my sarcasm?)
However, the good news on the horizon is that I believe one not-so-little gray Thoroughbred will be mine soon. We visited a boarding barn yesterday and I have a really good feel about the place. I didn’t want to board, I wanted to buy my own land, but at this point in time it simply makes sense to do it. I’ve also got a couple of new book ideas in mind that I’m currently researching. One in particular is going to be for “re-riders” like me who are coming back to their passion after an extended time off of riding.
So, here’s hoping that after the holidays life will be less hectic and I can get back in the saddle on a more consistent basis!
