I'll Keep You My Dirty Little Secret

PS - See those breeches?  Those are my wonderful, amazing, Tailored Sportsman Trophy Hunters in RUST!

Ok all, I have a confession to make.  I've been keeping a secret from you... but I can't bear to do so any longer.

I've been taking lessons.

I'm currently living pretty much in the heart of amazing hunter-jumper trainer-land, and I would be remiss to not take this opportunity to ride with them, learning as much as I can and really improving as a rider.

I am a good rider... but I want to be a great rider.  I want to be the kind of rider other people ask to have ride their horses.

And I'm now on the way.

Missing My Horses

I'm missing my horses pretty badly right now.  Both are doing well and their lessees (who are very sweet) are loving them, which makes me feel good, but I still miss them.  I can't help but see pictures and statuses posted on Facebook and think, "That should be me."

What makes this more frustrating is that my husband seems to think that now that both horses are leased out, I have no intention of having a horse up here!  For real?  We have discussed MANY times various options for me to have a horse up here, whatever horse that may be.  I can't be too mad at him, because overall, he really is supportive... he just tends to forget things sometimes.  But I still felt like kicking him.  Even if he does forget things sometimes, he knows how important horses are to me.

I'm thinking I might make a trip to Georgia soon to check in on them (and see my Atlanta friends!).  The trainer at Star's Lessee's barn also said that whenever I came down, she could have all kinds of horses for me to ride there, so I will probably take her up on that.

That's all for now, really.  Just wanted to get it off my chest.
