It’s been quiet around here. Winter doldrums have kicked in: it’s cold, sort of muddy, we have our pond back in the arena, holidays are a tough time of year for me mentally. I made it through November really well, hit Thanksgiving, and then after that weekend it all sort of went downhill. Oops.
So. A quick recap:
– we went on a lovely beach ride with Olivia and Dijon, photos/post to come- Daylight Savings means I’m only getting trail rides in on weekends (but the dam is still down, so I still can go straight out. That should be motivating.. but my motivation has run away.)
– I’m not even riding on some of my weekday barn days, we’re having to lunge/round-pen instead; photos/post to come on that too
– I took a long-time friend on another bareback pony ride. It was not one of Fetti’s better days.
– 2pointober prize: Herbal Horse product review in the works(woohoo!)
My usual holiday stress and anxiety is compounded by the fact that I’m mid-move. It’s a very minor move, as they go, but it’s still a change and things have to, well, move. So there’s that too.
Hopefully I’ll come out from hibernation sometime this month. No promises, but I’ll be trying.
