After over a week of being away from the barn, I finally got back out there on Sunday. Sunday morning I realized just how much stress I’d been living with because I felt shaky and off kilter.
The best solution when I feel like that is to go to the barn. Not to ride, but just to see the girls. Just putting my hand on Isis washes away the stress and everything is right with the world.
I spent time grooming Isis and Kasane, then rode Isis bareback in the ring and around the front field. I felt so much better having seen them.
And now I can finally go out to the barn in evenings instead of packing.
