Time flies when you're exploring
So I've been working at Castle Leslie in Ireland recently, which is so far an amazing experience which is inspiring me to work everywhere that I ever want to. I've fallen in love with a horse called No Name (so not really called anything, but still. I call him Nomad, but I don't think it'd stick) and would love to have him, but I'm not sure that I'm a good enough rider; he's not cantered with someone riding him yet, so is very very young and has only been sat on ten times. Less than, really, Dermot (who trains him) said.
It's a lot of work here, but it also is inspiring me to remember that horses /are/ what I love and what I want in my life. I'll have to be sensible and driven and work hard and, I can imagine riding Nomad from place to place in America or the continent of Europe - or both - until I find someone, something, that makes me want to stay. Marry an attractive farrier which would save on bills and be a few friends' fantasies, ahah.
I guess that this experience, working and living with girls who are really lovely and working on a yard where I've always wanted to be, is just reminding me of my previous blog post. I'm really happy that I'm able to remember what I want and I'm going to do it. The only problem is that I can no longer be bothered with university; I'd rather get going. I'll complete it, of course, but the concept of the future is so exciting!
We'll see. I look forwards to riding from place to place...... I'll do it at least once, promise. :) <3
