Every once in a while I've been getting the urge to ride. It only lasts for a few moments and the urge is always gone with fear taking over. It's so funny I think. I've ridden out her spooks, and they are nothing. I'm afraid It was actually a year ago that my horse obsession turned to fear. No amount of writing would explain how she acted. She was WILD, she was angry, and she was depressed. I had no excuse not to ride her so I did. The fear never went away, it would creep up at the most unexpected times. In the car on the way over, when she'd spook on the way into the barn, while lunging. Then I got hurt and I couldn't ride, hell for three weeks I couldn't even walk.
Lately, the urge has been happening, but it's different. I don't think I'm afraid anymore. When she freaks out on the lunge line I don't get mad or scared, I make her listen. Long story short, I am going to go out this weekend to ride my horse. I got this burning in my heart urge last night, but it was 9:30 and I know that going out to ride Denali at 9:30 would make her not very pleased. We'll see how it goes!!
Sorry for the lack of photos. My computer is at the shop and it's been gone for a week now. I miss my computer!! Actually, I was looking at my photos of Denali and noticed that I don't have any of me riding her.
Goal 1: Ride the horse
Goal 2: Have someone document riding the horse.
