Why The Long Face?


The Long Face

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.

Bear and I are so ready for spring.

Are you?

  1. I know you miss riding by now. A lot. Have you thought about asking around in the barn to perhaps catch a ride for someone with a too busy schedule? Not sure if feasible.
    Just here and there. It’s not cheating you know…

    • Well, you certainly know how to read between the lines, my fellow equestrian. 😉 … Yes, I do miss riding a lot. However, my one consolation is that it’s really been far too cold to ride so the timing of this couldn’t be more perfect. I’ve had my own healing work to do as well, so without the distraction of riding I’ve been able to focus on that, which is important as we move forward. Riding will pick up as the weather warms. There’s a story behind that, too, which I’m not yet ready to share. … Thank you for your thoughtful input. I really appreciate it. 🙂

      • I think you’re doing great with all of this! Reading your posts, there is a lot of patience there.
        I hope you’re surrounded by people supporting you in a positive air.

        Perhaps also a time to consider teaching him some silly tricks.

        I’ve never done so myself, always just putting dressage strictly first, (ugh, we’re always so strict…) but I do know the horses enjoy it and have seen many really thrive on little “party tricks” learned during convalescence.

      • Thank you. Yes, I do have great support. I am fortunate. As for tricks, Bear bows on command (and whenever he thinks it’ll get him a carrot), and he also smiles on command. I think I’ll teach him to count next … 😉
