Not Much to Say

I’m a little stuck.

While I have 1000’s of thoughts and ideas running through my head constantly, and about 50% of them are devoted to horses, I just don’t feel like I have much to say lately.  Or rather nothing interesting to add to the conversation.  My status right now isn’t changing, I’m horseless, will remain horseless for at least several more months, and am honestly riding once a week.  Frankly, I’m really boring at the moment.


Obviously I could rant about how frustrated I am to not be able to ride more, or how I (of course) keep finding all these perfect Horse2.0 candidates now, or even about my anxiety about remaining a hunter for the next 30 years of my life.  But, I don’t have the oomphf necessary right now.  It’s like I’m in cruise control; just along for the ride.

I’m hoping that over the next week or two I can really regain my focus and get my thoughts converted into text, but for now I’m happy to read along and follow everyone else’s stories.

  1. I wish you were near me. I have a lovely buckskin I would let you ride as often as you wanted (been toying with the idea of letting someone else ride him some to get more riding in for him) 🙂 I get into the dumps sometime too. It is okay it usually swings the other way quick enough. Just keep blogging and reading. We are here for you when you have something to say and even when you don’t :)!

  2. Girl, I know how you feel. And you know what? It is OK! It is just reflective of how your life is ever evolving. Try to relax and just enjoy where you are at. It will come back around and you will have tons to write about.

  3. That’s okay! There’s no reason to pressure yourself to do or say any more than you want to. Like horses, the blog should be fun! So if it’s more fun to read other people’s words for now, then do that and simply enjoy.

  4. I sort of feel the same way about not having a saddle, things are very stagnant. I’ve been trying to map out some events I want to attend in 2018 to cheer me up a bit… but I feel yah.

  5. We all go through these phases! It’s ok if you’re in cruise control mode, just enjoy it and when you’re ready to dive into more involved blogging/horse shopping/leasing/whatever we’ll all be here!

  6. I’ve always heard the post-college and post-baby stages of life are the toughest to keep riding through. I’m just amazed you’re even still riding one day a week with a toddler, you’re a huge inspiration. I know you’ll find a way to return to regular riding as soon as you can, and I enjoy anything you post in the meantime!

  7. I absolutely know how you feel. After selling Ramone and the crescendo which was my last year of grad school and moving, I felt like everything just kinda fell flat and I was in stasis mode for a while until I could get a new partner to connect with and be exciting again. This too shall pass.

  8. I know exactly what you mean. When Rio is unrideable (which feels like all the time), I often have a hard time staying engaged and thinking of things to post that don’t sound whiny and ungrateful. Comes in waves unfortunately. Maybe you could do some book reviews, features on equine artists/small business, that sort of thing? If you wanted to that is, otherwise I don’t think there is anything wrong with taking a break from the blogging life for a bit until it feels exciting again. Best of luck!

  9. It’s so hard! I felt really lost the last few years not riding and felt like I had nothing to talk about. It’s really weird to go from own your own, constantly riding or thinking about the horse to a once or twice a week lessoner.

  10. It is ok! I stopped blogging because I always felt like it came down complaining and waiting. So I understand the frustration. But, we are here waiting for you when ever you want to talk and listen to whatever you have to say.

  11. I can totally relate – I think we’ve all been there at one point or another. You’ll have to come ride Spring sometime, switch things up a bit! (Or Leo, if you’re into herd sour jerks that used to be fancy but now are mostly pasture ornaments)

  12. I hope you get your oomphf back soon 🙂 I totally understand what it’s like to be bored and feel like there’s nothing in my head that’s worth sharing atm. Can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with once you regain your focus though 😀

  13. Sometimes I struggles for weeks or month with what to write or even question why I bother. Then there are other times I don’t know how to stop especially when life is up. We’ll all be here when you get back to it that’s got sure! If you’re ever in RI… give me a jingle.
