How many times have I written about horses and getting back into riding? Too many to count right? Well sorry but here is another post.
I can't tell you how much I MISS riding horses. Doing volunteer work has really been great because I get to groom the ponies once a week and I feel like I am getting used to being around the animals again. But it still kills me when I see friends post show pictures. I miss it. I miss it so much it hurts.
When I was down in PA over this past weekend, I was able to get my riding stuff from the attic in my brother's house. I put my helmet on and tried my chaps on again (though they were not even CLOSE to closing sheesh!). Its all I have left, along with the saddle in my basement, of my prior life as an equestrian.
I want to be back on the horse, feeling the movements under my legs, having complete control and feeling free. I can't wait till I am done with this whole being sick shit. It sucks. I want my life back. I want to be around horses all the time and I want to RIDE.
