BUT! I still have all those extra days booked off work. So, I'm hanging out with G at our home up the coast. This time of year, that's really no hardship.
|Beach day yesterday. Where I work and live during the week and where Bridget is boarded is barely visible as the farthest point of land on the left. This being the coast, that's a 1.5 hrs drive and a 50min ferry ride away.|
|Never truly a horsey time out though!|
Yesterday, we had a beach day, today we're off to a lake.
I've been feeling lot burnt out with my riding of late. I want to be better so badly and I've been working very hard for what feels like little to no progress. This little time out is already working wonders with my mindset. B and I have fun, so if we don't achieve my goals together, that's cool. If I do end up looking for a horse to advance competition wise, that doesn't mean Bridget is any less awesome. I've got a great coach and a great support network and if I keep listening and working hard, the improvements have to come.
Until then, I'm enjoying the first real vacation I've had in two years. And it's awesome.
