Some Cuddle Time

Haven't seen Mr. B since Tuesday afternoon but apparently he's been doing pretty well... The text I received today was, "Giving the horses the day off because it's pretty miserable. Worked on w/t/c both directions yesterday." I'm pretty okay with that... But I know when I finally get to ride my horse, we'll be doing a whole lot more than walk, trot, canter in both directions. I really just need to Cowgirl Up and GTFO (Get the F*ck On)...

**Luckily I have some other riding opportunities that're coming up which will get my confidence back up. Something that I definitely need.**

Yes, I admit it. My confidence level? ZERO! I'm like... Me? Saddle? It's only been a few months but I guess Brantley and I have the same, "We won't stop." mentality. Sucks... No indoor was a bad idea, but we've got this! I have faith... No confidence... But faith <3

I showed up to the barn and took B for a 30 minute hand-walk through the trails and then we played a bit in the indoor. He had given CB a hard time going over the bridge... But with me he walked right on... Followed me over, let me send him over, back him over, side step over... Love him!

Then I stood in the middle of the ring a burrowed my face in that spot where his neck ends and his shoulders begin. I think I stood like that and scratched his girth area for 10-15 minutes... I wouldn't have stopped if the temperature hadn't of dropped 10* in those 10-15 minutes and my hands weren't turned white. He started to get a little chilly too so we walked over to his blanket and I tossed it back on.

Tomorrow and Monday off... Riding? I sure hope so!
