It's been a weird year. I used to be such a compulsive, 5-7 days a week, all-horses-all-the-time sort of person.
I'm ok with that about myself.
|she's not exactly suffering|
except from a lack of cwd boots
we fixed that problem
0/10 recommend on the process, but 10/10 on the outcome.
I have never ridden less.
I have never understood more.
We tried a couple lease situations and found out that while for me, Zoe is the Best Horse Ever (tm), she's not into sharing. I dropped her out of training and found out that while training is nice (and fitness is not a thing she holds on her own), life is a thing we can do together without professional help.
|also sunset shots ftw|
My focus has changed--instead of my emotional health every day hinging on whether a caged flight animal performs to my subjective expectations, I take a step back. I can love my horse and be ok if we have bad days.
|or if our day is "play king of the mountain" on new footing|
If we don't lesson.
If things aren't perfect.
|pats for the best mare|
She's the nicest horse I've ever owned.
I do less with her than any horse I've ever had.
|awww baby mare <3|
