I have had a hard choice to make these last couple of days. To lease or to buy. I have leased Louis for a month now. As nice as a horse as he is, him and I don't click. I want to be able to mesh with the horse that I ride. I am not comfortable on him and he is not comfortable with me. Thank god my saddle and girth fit most of the horses on the farm, and that there are other horses that I can try out. I like Louis, don't get me wrong.
As you all know I am just learning and I am not very confident yet. My lease with Lou got me 2 days of riding him whenever I wanted to . Well since I am not confidant, the lease didn't do me much good. I have decided to take the $150.00 that i would dish out for the lease and put it into my horse fund. I am still taking my lessons but instead of 1hr a week, I am taking 1/2 hour twice a week. I can still go to the farm when I want and spend time there if I wish too. I like it there and when I leave I feel like I just left a therapy session. I smile more these days and my mind stops running a 100mph for 1/2 an hour. I like that.
