As weird as this sounds, riding horses isn't just about the fun. It provides for a bit of emotional healing at times, and stability to the mind as thoughts can just run away. Horses are a great source of companionship too. When I started dating Drew, he filled that void and I wasn't looking to ride as much. It is a great release. It was a great get-a-way from basektball, that's for sure. When I started dating Andrew, I just didn't need it as much so I thought. But I've gotta get back into it. I've neglected a part of myself and really miss it. And I've neglected the horses as well. Remember in the Toy Story 2 when the girl leave behind the doll... and then song plays "When Somebody Loved Me." I cried in that song. I did that to Melody and don't want to do the same to the horses out here.
This year I'm going to plan out days to ride. It won't be easy with my work and Drew's school, but that is why I'm going to plan in advance.
