Yesterday my work day was going terrible. Nothing worked. My computer was slogging away at simple tasks, people were yelling wanting me to work faster, I couldn’t get anything to work.. It was terrible. A thoroughly wretched Monday.
I get home and hubby is sitting in the garage with the dogs waiting for me (which always brightens up my day). I give him a peck on the cheek and run inside to change into riding pants, then outside to the barn. I figured I’d ride Ava while I had some daylight left, then clean stalls (since the barn has lights).
But when I got into the barn. . . .
ALL OF THE STALLS ARE CLEAN!!!
Hubby cleaned the stalls, turned Ava out into the big pasture, swept the barn, and dumped the poop!
I have the most amazing hubby ever!!
Not one to pass up a gift, I grabbed Ava, tacked up, and we headed off to the fields behind us.
I had a blast!
We trotted through the twisty, winding trails in the pine trees. We watched two deer run beside us. We galloped through the field and raced up the hills.
It was AWESOME!!
Ava seemed to enjoy it also. Her normal “I don’t wanna go above a walk” sulky behavior dissappeared and was replaced with a high energy, raring to go mare! She was responsive, light, and full of pep!
I swear, there’s no amount of stress a good gallop can’t get rid of.
