‘Tis the season of cold, cold nights (and days) so the mid-winter doldrums are in full swing for me. It can be a bit difficult to summon the motivation to get out to the barn and ride when I can’t feel my fingers. Thankfully for me though, my trainer recently popped back up north from her base in Aiken to teach some lessons and I was able to squeeze one in. A great lesson and a little kick in the pants was just what I needed to get re-excited for the competition season ahead, no matter how far away it seems right now.
