Another Horse Post

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.
