30 Day Blogging Challenge- Day 2
Wow, it’s already day number 2 in my 30 day blogging challenge! This is 2 days down, 28 more to go! By the time I am done with this challenge, you will all know so much more about me and my horses as well as my strengths, and my weaknesses. I wanted to offer a little more to you about myself, and thanks to me reading the incredible blog She Moved To Texas, I found her 30 day blogging challenge and decided to emulate what she had done. With a few twists in some of the topics.
It has been a while, in my opinion since I rode a horse. In fact, it was last Monday, January 2nd. That may seem like not that long ago, but too me it seems too long. I rode both of my horses that day. Frisby the older one, I rode first because he is always dependable no matter what. But that is what happens after owning a horse for over 10 years. And then I rode Ethan, my young project Thoroughbred.
I tried on my Christmas present, a used Wintec dressage saddle on both of them and thanks to a larger girth for Frisby, it fit them both wonderfully.
Of both the rides, each had their good and bad points. Frisby is dependable and quiet, but I am continually having to ask him to move. Ethan on the other hand, has a flowing trot and he is very willing to move. But I must remember he is young, and unpredictable, so I always have to keep my guard up so I don’t inadvertently end up on the ground.
I have to say that ride was a little more intimidating because I haven’t ridden Ethan as much, and I am still learning about him, like he is about me. I can’t wait for the days to start getting longer, and warmer so I can ride when I get home from work.
But until then I keep myself busy with a long list of projects that will help me when I can ride every single day.
So instead of choosing to look at the negative (not being able to ride) I look at using this time to the best of my ability, and making the most of it. When I get home from work in the dark, I can still go out into the barn and spend some time with my horses. Because I took the time earlier this year to hang up some Christmas lights in the barn so I could still ‘play’ with my horses.
And I have a HUGE list of projects, mainly creating more videos for my YouTube channel and coming up with new ideas of things I can make.
I choose to look at the winter as an opportunity to get a head start for the upcoming good weather! So stay tuned to my website, as well as my YouTube channel for different diy projects you can make when you have some down time, and eventually I will have lots of riding articles to ride about this spring and summer.
