The thing about forts that fascinates me the most, is to know the hundreds of years they have been standing there, witnessing changes of reigns and ownership.
They have so many tales to narrate, and I just wish I had enough time to hear them all!
Okay guys here's the scoop: so for the longest time (basically since I started riding at the barn I'm at now) I've had it in my head that sometime in the future I would buy Boomer. I'd fallen in love with him way too quickly for my own good and now that I've come to my senses I've realized that that's not going to happen. Boomer will always be a lesson horse, and he's not going anywhere. And honestly in the long run, I don't think we'd be a good match. I'll always love Boomer but we're on a bit of a break up right now. I need to be riding a horse that can help me work on myself and my confidence. I've been feeling like every time I would ride Boomer we would get in some form of an argument and I'd always fall at some point. And that was really frustrating me. Friday I rode for the first time in like two weeks, and it was such a nice leisurely lesson on a great well experienced horse.
I know I'm an idiot and I'm crazy for feeling the way I felt about a lesson horse. Especially when my trainer told me (not in a mean way) that I'm the only person who felt the way I did about a lesson horse.
So that's basically that. I'm no longer dreaming of a forever with Boomer. It's a little sad but it's not like I'm going anywhere or he's going anywhere. I still see him and say hello to him. I'll still ride him (not for a little while) in the future. He'll always be my cinnamon bun 😊
I'm looking for having my own equine partner this year. Whether it's a lease horse or adopting a horse of my own. I'm determined to make it happen. I don't know when it will happen but it's my new goal for 2017. But in the mean time I'm going to keep improving and working on myself 💪
