I don’t know how people with more than one horse do it. Today I had the opportunity to ride Ransom before my lesson with PJ. My lesson was supposed to be at 4pm. Granted, I didn’t rush through grooming or riding, but to make my 4pm lesson I had to leave my house at 1:30pm. I didn’t get home until 6pm! That’s a lot of time at the barn.
In addition, I was totally exhausted after riding both boys. Barbara commented that I “looked wilted.” That was a good word for it. I understand the saying “you need to ride two horses to ride one well”. I definitely didn’t have enough in me to effectively work PJ because our lesson was all about drive, drive, drive. I’m getting very tired of doing all the work in this relationship. Ransom was so easy in comparison. Regardless, I’m going to keep at it because I have faith in PJ, but believe me, I’m going to sleep really well tonight.
