I’m sure I’m not the only one in the horse world who sometimes has a problem finding the motivation to ride. It seems recently I just don’t feel like doing anything with the horses. Sure I like to play with them or take pictures but lately I just don’t have the motivation to get out there and groom and tack up and take Blue or Dusty out for a spin. Has this ever happened to any of you? And if it has how did you fix it?
If I had to guess I’d say the weather has something to do with my lack of interest. One day the temperature is 50 degrees and the next day it could hit 90. We’ve been treated to three solid days of torrential rains that stopped this morning. The weather doesn’t usually affect my mood for riding but other than that I can’t figure out why I’m less than enthusiastic about working with the horses.
Now that I’ve put a hold on building the Ark I’m going to do a hard target search for my motivation. When I find it I’ll be back but in the meantime I’m taking a little mental health break from the farm and the horses and will be heading out for a short seaside vacation. Hopefully, when I get home my motivation will be with me.
Until next time
