BAAAAH (or how it is that I never ride the beast)

There aren't very many things that make me supremely pissy in this world (ok, that might be a lie).  But the sense that I'm not in control of my schedule, or that things are "getting away from me" is one of them.

Case in point. I haven't ridden my mare since April 14th, and even that was only for a few minutes with my vet.  I have only been home for two days since then, which is a legit excuse, but doesn't really change the facts.

So you can imagine my glee yesterday when upon walking off the plane and finally situating myself back into the office I realized that I had Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday AND Friday evenings free to go see the mare and get back in the proverbial saddle.

Of course then the appointments started piling up.  Mare's shoe still isn't back on, dentist is coming to the barn and Dr Finn needs to be scheduled.

All good things, all things that need to happen, but I'm sorta annoyed that Miss P isn't in fully operational order.  However, I got on the horn today and both her teeth and her shoe will be done by end of day and Dr. Finn just got confirmed for this coming Sunday.  Which should still leave me Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and maybe even Saturday to remember how to ride :)

In the mean time I'm just going to have to settle for opening up my checkbook and making "clip-clop" noises while I sprinkle $$ all around the barn.



  1. Girl, I feel your pain.

  2. I so feel your pain. Not the traveling, but the fates aligning against my riding!

  3. I know how you feel. It sucks! Hopefully you'll have great rides this week to make up for it!

  4. Har har har. Maybe we can get together and have a party where we all make clip clop noises and sprinkle money. Denali's mom can come, too.

  5. Sigh. I haven't been on the back of a horse in two years and it sucks!!! So yeah like the other girls said I totally know how you feel. I hope things work out this week so you can ride and I'm really excited to hear how Sunday goes. :D
