Having officially recovered from my lessons on Prairie, it's only fitting that I'm planning to torture my poor legs (and left arm/claw) again with another trip this weekend.  I feel like a human ping-pong ball bouncing between total elation at having lessons scheduled - and total and utter despair at the thought of being absolutely crippled again.

Did I mention that maximum post-lesson-crippling should strike just about the time I fold myself into an airplane seat for our honeymoon?  Perfect.  Nothing like starting off a trip tied up like a pretzel! If it sounds like I'm complaining about riding my fabulous new horse before going on our fabulous big trip... well. I guess I am.

But I don't mean it (the whining that is).  I just always dread any sort of pretzel-related feelings.

In actuality I'm totally and completely thrilled with my life's itinerary for the next month.

Tomorrow:  Go see P and ride in the SUNSHINE

Thursday/Friday: work a little

Saturday Sunday: RIDE A LOT (yay big mare)

Monday/Tuesday: work a little

Wednesday until March.....  lions and tigers bears oh my!  Okay.  No actual tigers or bears.. but hopefully some rhino and elephants!!

I will be pretty absent for a while, but in theory our safari itinerary includes some rides (both in jungle and on beach) so I'm hoping to have some mildly relevant stories to share.

P has already made me promise to bring her back something, and P2? well, she doesn't understand why people would ever fly for pleasure (and pointed out that her passport has more stamps than The Boy's ((rude)) ).

Full report to come from P's visit!


  1. Riding in the jungle and on the beach!!!!! Cool!!!!!!!

    I can't wait to hear about the horse visits and I hope you have tons of fun on your honeymoon. It sounds like it will be so much fun.

  2. Sounds like a good excuse to get a massage during your honeymoon! Have fun!

  3. Did you happen to see the clip of Mark Todd riding in Africa? It's pretty amazing and even HE was rattled galloping along with giraffes and zebra!

    Have a wonderful time!

  4. Have a fantastic honeymoon, and take lots of pictures of warm sunny places for all of us stuck back here with good olde winter to enjoy.

  5. Wow, that is a great itinerary! Can't wait to see pictures of the trip!! As for the soreness... get yourself some arnica gel (or use Sore No More, which is what I do). I swear to you, it makes a gigantic difference.
