If you’re riding a horse, you’ve already won.
Awareness of the outside world. I got nothing. I’ve run out of words for appalled. If you are reading this from elsewhere in the world and are wondering what exactly the US is thinking, I don’t know what to tell you. I live here and I don’t understand.
At the beginning of the this month, we swapped the schedule. Horses in am; bikes in pm.
We kept getting caught out by afternoon thunderstorms. Plus, the buggy evening hours are easier to zip through on a bicycle. Summer afternoons in the South are a festival of bugs, heat, and thunderstorms.
Previous Horse did not like being ridden before breakfast, He was so unpleasant about it, we rarely tried. Their schedule was feed early, finish, wait an hour, ride. That was acceptable to himself.
The current barn occupants have a much more extended breakfast ritual. Naps are involved. An hour after breakfast, they have barely looked at their emails or finished their first cup of coffee. Work is not on the agenda.
Instead, they are perfectly happy to work before breakfast. Wait an hour. Feed. Get on with their day.
What is your exercise preference? Morning? Evening? Never?
Stay safe. Stay sane,
