I have reset my human button and feel recovered. I had such plans to work out and ride yesterday AM after not doing either for almost a week, but woke up and saw the temp was 25* and said HELL NO and went back to sleep.
With that information, I know you all are highly intrigued for whats next, considering its Wednesday and you know what that means...
So after feeling incredibly guilty for not even touching my other horse for a week (yeah, I never even made it to the barn once just to stuff his face with food), I started planning out what this week would look like with school, gym, OT and now, stall cleaning.
I love Yankee and missed his sweet face, but god bless it I did not miss barn chores and keep forgetting they are here sometimes.
Anyways. Bacardi. Other horse I own. Neglected. Suffering.

BUT, show season is upon us and I will go broke trying to show this lil bitch. Hashtag life goals amirite?
This week I have planned to ride 3 times and lunge once (tomorrow). That sufficient right? But then again Ohio is fucking insane and decides its going to be colder than a witches tit after a week of gorgeous, sunny, 70* days...and snow 3/7 days in the week and then thunderstorm randomly and then get cold as balls again.
So who knows if that is actually how many times I will work le red horse.
Anyways, what I realized while carefully planning out my week to the minute, per usual, is that I never actually plan on WHAT I will be doing in my rides.
Maybe Sundays, where I usually jump since no one is ever there and I can jump in peace (read: everyone doesn't have to deal with my spaz pony) and quiet and force my

I had special calendars all color coded and labeled with exact movements we would work on and what tack I planned to use etc. I am a crazy person.
So now, I just don't give a fuck.

Generally I do one hack, 2 flat and a jump sesh, but sometimes the ring is too full of jumps and I just jump every day that week because why not. Or I WANTED to hack, but its pouring. Or I wanted to flat, but there are too many horses in the ring/hes feeling too fresh and I just don't ride at all.
So, no plans.
Maybe this is why we have only done 2 schooling shows in our 2 year career together and I was stuck at training with Yankee for 5 years but whatever, details. Planning my rides don't work for me and only lead to disappointment.
