At last! Photos of me riding!

It's just that it's not a horse.

Hi All.

For about seven years I have posted daily about equine exploits. I still want to return to this daily habit, but at the moment I'm not as able to indulge in my horsey habits, and I have less to write about! Harv, while still with me, is not photographable or as available as he once was, now that he's crossed the rainbow bridge.

Riley, while he is still my horse, I am riding once or twice a week, letting my trainer keep him tuned up and developing for his next owner. We've come close a few times, but he is not yet sold. I'm alternately anxious that he won't sell, and anxious that he will sell -- can I really watch someone take him away in a trailer? It's so hard to think about.

For now I'm enjoying my rides and lessons on Riley in the summer warmth, and hoping that the right person comes along. On days I normally would ride a horse, Bob and I are enjoying our bikes, or I'm working out like a fiend at one of three gyms I belong to.

This is not where I want to be permanently, but I'm accentuating the positive, riding bikes and working out to get stronger, to be a better rider. It's all good.
