Team Effort

I had these grand ideas of being able to post up a more detailed agenda of how my next year was looking, or perhaps even trainer reports from O’s weekly training rides. Except what I have to write about isn’t anything that I want to acknowledge.  In short: things aren’t going well.

So right now it’s easier to curl up in my sweatpants, cuddle the baby, or live vicariously through my riding friends with their horses.  (I’m loving all of your blog shenanigans.) But really I find myself putting more emotional distance between O and myself.  I have never been more grateful for the powerhouse team of trainers, vets, family and friends that I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by.

Sorry to be all gloomy, especially during the holidays, but I wanted to clear up any doubt I’ve disappeared again.  I’m still here, just not full of O updates like I was hoping I’d be. Thanks for reading along.

Wishing you all the happiest holiday wishes.

  1. I just got to meet a friend’s one month old girl and feed her her bottle. She was so sweet. Snuggle your baby. Winter is never fun horse time anyway in the cold. I think you’re fine. O will be there for you another warmer day. 🙂

  2. I’m so sorry to hear that things aren’t going well with O. But if you ever want to talk, or vent or cry or drink wine, with a friend hundreds of miles away who is going through the same thing, I’m here for you! Horses are tough, physically, mentally and emotionally.

  3. I cannot speak from experience but from what I hear having a baby is a pretty big deal…understandable that a shift in focus would be required. Merry Christmas, and you will see more with O in the New Year.

  4. Sorry to hear this. I’m having the same fight with my gelding, except that to add insult to injury, he seems to hate me personally, too. Sigh.

  5. {{{{{HUGS}}}}}
    Life is too short, but breaking up is hard… Like, really hard…
    I know we’re not super close and convenient, but come ride with us anytime!
    Or just come hang out! Riding is not requisite, and it doesn’t have to be at the barn!

  6. I’ve been having a rough year with Stampede myself so definitely understand the feelings. Let’s hope the ponies get it together in the new year! In the meantime, enjoy your time off and the holidays! Hoping that you will take a trip my direction in 2016 so we can meet!

  7. cuddling with your baby girl in sweatpants sounds pretty perfect right about now. so very sorry to hear that O isn’t responding to the program the way you had hoped. my fingers are crossed that the outlook improves with the weather!
