Truthful Tuesday

You GUYS! I got to ride a horse yesterday! Not one of my herd obviously, but my wonderful friend from Katie Wanders let me ride her triple XL sized pony yesterday.

17.3 hand Danish Warmblood does in fact make my butt look smaller.
I'll talk all about it tomorrow on What's Up Wednesday, but I'm mentioning it to day because it leads into my confession...
I've really let my self go. I mean, I rode for maybe 20 minutes (cause old asthmatic lady couldn't breath) and I'm definitely feeling it today. My arms are sore, my legs are sore, my BUTT is sore... Someone clearly needs to start working out! But it's so completely worth it. That twenty minutes was the highlight of the last three weeks for me.
Have you ever taken a hiatus from riding only to discover how much of a work out it REALLY is when you get back on?
