Happy New Year


I don't tend to make them. While it is a good idea on some levels, I find I much prefer to live life as it comes at this point instead of making too many plans I may or may not be able to follow.

I do hope to ride more than I did last year. My knees are ever so much better and I just want to enjoy my Boys. I seem to have lost the urge to compete, so that does make motivation harder, but I've always enjoyed training, regardless of the goal, and that's still true.

Regardless of where my riding goes from now on, I am pleased to have the option of the challenge of Tucker or the relaxation of Chance as options. And, of course, there is retired Toby who still can offer a fun ride to remind me of just where training can go if you stick at it.

So Happy New Year to us all, wherever we ride and whenever we ride. The moments we spend with our horses are priceless, whether seated on their backs or just being with them to share the wonders of the world.

    A happy new year to you and your horses! Hope you have an enjoyable 2013 with all three boys.

  2. Sounds a lot like my non-resolutions. We are lucky to have horses in our lives no matter how much they are ridden or not. I really would like to ride more this year and make the time to do it. Whether that happens or not is still up in the air.

    Happy New Year to you and the boys and the kitties.

  3. nah - i don't make them either. Happy new year and wishes for many great rides!
