Last Friday, I once again began taking lessons. And wonders of all wonders, the lesson horse did not aggravate me. In fact I enjoyed it. Well, I enjoyed it until my poor calves began to spasm in agony. At that point I wasn't thinking this was a great idea. Did I mention my instructor forgot I hadn't been on a horse in a very long time? Every Friday, I head to a local jumping stable Gorsline, with my friend Jen as the instructor. I like the challenge of the jumping world because it's unfamiliar for me. I also like the sweat factor in developing a greater degree of fitness. I figure it's a way I can enjoy riding and still stretch my brain and body.
Tonight, I went with Jen to take a gelding on a test drive. I had been on the fence over purchasing this horse for a while now. Simple fact - I don't NEED another horse. However, want, want can get me into trouble every now and then.
I had had a perfect brain wave - perhaps Jen would be interested. And after viewing the horse she is. So now, I sit back and wait and watch to see what happens.
Ahhhhhh - relief. The secret's out.
Or is it?
