Long story short, I really shouldn't be riding. I finally have to admit that there's enough damage to my head that my coordination is off, I lose my balance, get a panicky "sliding on ice" or falling feeling, and then think my horse is being weird. So. Time for a horse hiatus while I start a bunch more medical crap I can't afford. I have hope that by spring I'll be riding again.
In case you hadn't noticed, horses are my everything. I need something else to get passionate about. I also need to work on getting fitter. So hiking and fitness are going to be my new focus over the winter. I already love hiking, and I can bring a horse along too sometimes.
I'm not going so far as to change the name of the blog, but it's going to be mostly hiking pics, trail and mileage talk, dogs, and an occasional horse. Hopefully just temporarily. It's killing me to think that riding might be a thing of the past. I'm just going to have to be patient with myself and hope for the best.
