We are back to night time riding! It still seems weird to have night be so early now but I suppose that’s life during winter time.
I will say that the drive is starting to get to me. I live only about 30 miles from the barn but it usually takes between 50 and 60 minutes due to backroads and low speed limits. This wasn’t a problem during the summer but now that it’s taking up most of my evening… I’m starting to dread it!
Still, I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to make this work. One of the girls asked me to ride her horse for her since she has swim practice but I just can’t. I don’t even have energy to ride the GusGus some days! Still, I love this barn so I’m sure I’ll figure something out.
Thankfully, Gus is back to 100% sound now that I put his front shoes back on. Not so thankfully, the cold has hit and I’ve got a “wild” guy on my hands now. To be fair, wild for Gus is really no big deal. He did get a little squirrelly the other night but it was crazy busy. Now if this rain can just stay away, I can start getting back into a normal schedule.
