Today I rode 10 miles. I did not do this on Prize. Nope, I borrowed a good trail horse so it was actually fun. I would have been a nervous wreck on Prize. But, the owner of this horse told me he was good and brave so I believed her. I can seriously psych myself out of trying things with Prize because I’m worried about how she will react. Intellectually I know that she will probably be just fine but I still get panicky. I need to work on this so I get comfortable doing things out of my comfort zone with her.
Right now I feel pretty good. I was relaxed during the ride so hopefully I won’t be too sore tomorrow. Last time I rode this far I was lame for a week because I was so uptight that my muscles were all cramped up. We’ll see tomorrow how I feel.
