Peace & Quiet

I have a tough time riding after work. I went on a quick coffee date with Claire this afternoon (sometimes you just HAVE to get out of the office) and she was just so damn excited to go out and ride her horse, Louie, tonight. I felt like a weirdo for just really wanting to go home. The thought of sitting in traffic, tacking up, untacking- just exhausting.
But you know what? I had a blast tonight. It's not often (or really ever) that I'm the last person out at the barn. It was so relaxing taking time to clean my tack, sweep the crossties, and leave everything just so. Perfectly peaceful, quiet, and calming. It turned out to be just what I needed.
Polly can't help herself. She loves to take selfies!

Goodnight barn!

  2. I find it is always worthwhile when I make myself go on those days that I just feel too tired. Glad it was peaceful!
