Grinding My Gears, Mid-South Spring Premiere 2022


Awareness of the outside world. Whatever: Straight White Male: The Lowest Difficulty Setting There Is & Whatever: “Straight White Male: The Lowest Difficulty Setting,” Ten Years On.


At showgrounds. [Show Report]

Wandering around stable area.

Waiting for classes.

Suddenly hit with a wave of ‘I don’t want to be here.’

Not nerves.

Rather, it was ‘I want to be doing other things than this.’

I have made no secret that I would drop saddle seat like last year’s paint color if I had a chance to jump. [Conflicts 2017]

This is the first time the thought has occurred at a horse show.

Grateful for the opportunities. Yes.

Learned much. Yes.

“Saddleseat has been a slender bridge over the abyss of despair that is my riding career.” That was back in 2014. Does math. Shudders. In June. Two months before buying Milton. Sighs. [A Grateful Whine]

It would be so tempting to snuggle into, “a warm, comfy blanket that is almost what I want.” [Overthinking]

I need to keep my eye on my own path …

.. no matter how frustrating.

I need to not get distracted by other paths …

… no matter how cute the snoots.
