My goal is to become healthier - eat better and exercise more. Sounds incredibly simple, but it's very hard to do sometimes! I have been helping my grandfather haul hay, so that's been quite the weekend workout! For many years I haven't been riding that much and it's rather disheartening to realize that your skills don't just stay the same that way. ;D I've started riding again this year - about six weeks ago, and already am feeling a lot more comfortable in the saddle. My goal is to lose weight in order to be healthy and also to enjoy being active with my horse and my dog.
How does everyone juggle time for exercise and riding? Or do you do your best to make riding time physical? (Lots of posting? Mucking stalls? etc) Just curious, because by the time I get home from work and we finish riding, there's not much time for anything other than eating dinner and winding down before bed. (I get up at 5:10 am and can't really imagine getting up any earlier!)
