Today I had the morning to go ride! Yay!
Now, as many of you know, I have Lyme Disease. I’m doing pretty well these days. However, last year at this time, I wasn’t doing so well. So, I haven’t ridden any of my very hot horses in almost a year. But, my week at R Lazy S Ranch was terrific and I’m feeling ready to get back in the saddle with my hotsy totsy mounts.
Of course, my horses wouldn’t be as hot if I worked them as often as they work their horses at R Lazy S… but, they’d still be hot horses – just more tired or more in shape, hot horses. And, this is my fault because I always loved the hot Morgans and hotter TWH for showing. So, that’s what I have. Except when I was making those choices, I was completely healthy and strong. Now, I’m not. Consequently, I have a bunch of hot show horses… when really all I want to do now is trailride – peacefully.
Now that I’m feeling better, I thought the best thing for all of us is for me to ride more often – to get us all in shape and relaxed.
So, that was my thought when I went out today to wrangle one of my riding horses…
