Riding in the Cold – 2013

January 26, 2013

A friend sent me this comic and it is very appropriate for the past few days of below average weather.

I have made a point of acquiring quality winter outdoor gear over the past few years.  It makes all the difference.  And like most equestrians, I get in a funk when I don’t get to ride for a few days. So having good outdoor gear is necessary.

Sometimes I don’t even realize I am in a funk until I get on and go for a ride.  It works like magic.  In fact, about two weeks ago I was talking to my teammate Kim, and was rambling on about being in a funk and she said “you just need to go for a ride.”  I grumbled a bit more, but the next day I took her advice and made sure I got in a ride.  And she was right, I just needed to sit on my pony and I felt balanced again.

So yeah, even in the winter, it is worth bundling up just to sit on my pony.
