Slippery Saddles

This week is week two of my work-exchange program where I offer stable help in exchange for riding lessons and or a part-lease. Last week the stable owner contacted me to suggest I get up on a horse this week. I’m writing this Monday morning (Jan 28), and this afternoon I put in my Barn Betty shift. Perhaps I’ll get up on a horse afterward; perhaps I’ll stick to ground work. My newsletter subscribers find out today (February 1st). If you want to know, come back here next Friday, or sign up for my blog posts.

If I do mount up, I intend to remain in the saddle until I choose to dismount. Unlike these poor souls…


There is a time for work. And a time for love. That leaves no other time.
