Back in the Saddle

I didn't realize how much I had missed riding this winter until I started riding again yesterday. It seems like there are always so many things that prevent me from doing what I really WANT to do. It is easy to get into the daily routine that doesn't allow time for the fun part - riding. Time is precious for us all. That is why we need to make time for having fun in our daily routine. I really, really enjoyed my ride yesterday (and today!). I didn't ride long but it felt sooooo good just to be on horseback again. It was a blast. The horses, SRF's Silver Sundown and RRF Gold Nugget, both behaved just like they did the last time I rode back in the fall - maybe even a little better. I'm fortunate to have Robert, Charlie, and Mike to work the horses here and keep everyone in such good shape. I don't really have to worry much about the training aspect for my horses, they're ready and I just ride. I get some coaching so I know what I need to do but the real training has already been done. As I ride, any problems or school concerns I have just seem to melt away as the wind blows my hair, and my horse gaits beneath me.
