And I feel crappy about it.
Why though? Fawkes doesn't care. He doesn't have a particularly great work ethic and he isn't the most human oriented horse in the world. He also is not much harder to ride after a week off than he is after a day off so that isn't going to make life any harder.
I think it is because we live in an area where there isn't much turn out so I feel responsible for getting there and getting him out of his stall. I also feel like I am wasting money and his life when he just sits around. The money question is valid, but his life? My brain is just being deliberately idiotic. I mean, exhibit A:
|Not exactly the face of a horse begging to go out and work. Actually, this is his "PEPPERMINTS?!?!?" face|
We lost our jumping trainer recently to changes at the barn, but I will get a dressage lesson in this weekend and then next weekend we are moving to our new barn with 2 different jumping trainers to choose from! If things work out, I might even try a jumping lesson with the current barn's new jumping trainer before I leave, just to see. I absolutely love getting different input on both my horse and my riding.
