Hi! I haven't posted in a while but here's an update: As mentioned in my previous blog post, after 10+ years of being out of the saddle... I was thinking of getting back into riding. Last fall I booked some lessons and it's been amazing. It's been great to reconnect with "barn life" and be so close to horses again. The simple things like leading a horse, brushing, and tacking up, really put me right back into that world.
I was very excited (and a bit anxious) for my first lesson. I expected to just do a bit of trotting and cantering, but I was really happy when my trainer said I should jump a few verticals. It was sooo fun!
I must say it's been an incredible experience to reconnect with a passion in this way. If there's something in your life that you've been thinking of getting back into -do it! You won't regret it.
In my last post I had a step by step of one of my paintings. I thought it would be good to post the finished work. I hope you are having a great summer. B
