Another look at goals

Check out Laura’s post today on goals.
I must say that since I was unexpectadly downsized to one horse, I do feel less guilt. I don’t feel guilty if I don’t ride, there’s always tomorrow. If I want to spend time grooming, I do because there isn’t another horse in it’s pen demanding my attention. I go a little slower. It’s no longer a rush to and from the manure pile when cleaning pens. I only have to clean one pen and stopping to scratch a wither is not going to keep me from achieving the day’s “goal” of having both pens clean. I don’t want to worry about giving equal time and effort to each horse. I don’t want my horses to become another job.
I’m not getting another horse until I can keep this feeling peace and carefree attitude I have now. Which means my second horse probably won’t be an endurance horse. Horses are my hobby. I don’t want to feel rushed and stressed all the time. I want to slow down and breathe deeply.
