I have good news and bad news.
The good news is that I got a couple pictures from the jumper show last weekend. Ya know… the last time I rode. Unless you count me sitting on my horse bareback last night.
The bad news is, it’s still raining every day. In fact yesterday it looked like this.
Inches upon inches. On top of the inches upon inches we already had. Basically we’re never riding again and the horses are never leaving their stalls again. I’m not even being dramatic anymore, that’s just a fact. It kinda looks like it might not rain today, which would be both strange and amazing. There’s some really big bright spherical orb thing in the sky that I caught a brief glimpse of earlier before it ran away again.
I cleaned stalls last night and the horses all just looked at me like HEEELLPP UUSSSSS.
All I can really do is a lot of this:
Because I feel months of work and the show season and the goal of AEC’s slipping farther and farther away with every drop of rain. We’re still going to the event this weekend (they’ve gotten less rain up north), but I’m not exactly hopeful for a great performance considering I’ve ridden twice in 12 days and the poor horses have been stuck inside since Sunday. In fact, I had a dream that I was second after dressage and then had 4 rails in stadium to drop to 6th. Even my subconscious has given up on my life goals.
Is it possible for mass amounts of rain to cause instant depression? I’ve even tried hiding my feelings in food and that’s not really helping either. That always helps, especially in the form of Thin Mints. I’m at a loss here for how to treat it if food doesn’t work.
I have a lot of review posts I need to write, I just have no spirit left. Sorry readers, this blog is a sad and boring place right now. But… yay event this weekend? Unless it turns into a mud fest. Boo.
