Or is it just one vicious circle? This is something i’ve been musing over for a few weeks now. I see lots of posts from fellow bloggers and riders pondering the same thing, i know it’s not something we battle alone with!
Now, i don’t think i lack confidence when it comes to riding, i can at times on the ground but actually riding, i’m ok. I will push boundaries and ask for more, more trot, more angle in the leg yield, a 60 minute hack instead of 30 minutes….
But once my motivation drops (bad weather, busy at work, kids social lives taking over) everything suffers and i find my confidence drops too.
The what if’s start creeping in and suddenly another day off won’t hurt, except in reality that 1 day becomes 1 week and 1 month! So the circle starts again…. i do find the more i ride the higher my motivation and confidence are to ride the next day and the day after…keeping the motivation is another thing!
So on the back of this post and my halfway house post i have earmarked some competitions to enter… this coupled with the support of EquiMind should be enough to springboard us back into some sort of routine with riding!
I recently read this post by Roosa and thought it was an excellent alternate view to what my post is about and just shows we all suffer at some point in time.
