Shoes, Stereos, Couches and Other First World Problems

Last week I have a bevy of first world problems that seemed to touch all important aspects of my life. Luckily, nothing is really, seriously wrong and everyone will be fine and things will get worked out. But let me tell you, it was a frustrating and exasperating week for me. Since nobody really wants to hear me complain, I’ll give you the reader’s digest version before moving on to better things.

Sometimes You Just Need to Have Fun

For the past few weeks, I’ve been riding the little bay Thoroughbred mare, Moiya, you met two weeks ago. Due to a tough situation completely out of my control, she’s become somewhat of a regular on my schedule in addition to her once-a-week IEA lesson. I’m definitely not complaining — I’ve loved being able to ride this awesome mare — but I do wish that the reason was different. Anyways, While Miles is out of commission (he threw a shoe on Sunday and is now brewing an abscess), I’ve also been taking my weekly lessons on Moiya.  So far, it’s been really educational and a lot of fun.
