Top 10 reasons why I didn't ride

1. My horse was too dirty

Oh hell no.


2. My horse was asleep

Dafuq, lady, I need my beauty rest


3. It was too cold

Don't laugh, but this is the snowpocalypse


4. It was too hot

Pretty much the entire summer


5. I was too tired

Even the cat refuses to get up


6. The commute was awful

I don't think I can make it that far...


7. It was raining

I need floaties

8. There were too many other chores to do

Seriously lady, this grass isn't gonna mow itself


9. My tack didn't match
Navy saddle pad with a tan bling brow band? I can't even.


10. My horse is too cute

I deserve cookies, not rides.


So, what's your excuse?

  1. No 1 - always. As you so memorably put it a few years ago, "your horse is not a rideable color."

  9. I had a livery client who used all of these. Plus "It's too windy".
    Plus "Well, I have to leave for work at 12, so I don't have time to ride in the morning" (that one had me scratching my head, she lived a 5 minute walk away from the stables)
    I'm sure she had more but time has eroded the memories. Thankfully.

    1. I don't think I've ever used the "it's too windy" excuse. But the other ones, I totally admit to.

  11. Barn chores took all the time -- too hot, too cold, ... I think we share pretty much the same list.

    1. Barn chores are actually probably the single legit reason not to ride. There's always too much to do!

  12. I dipped out on riding one night this week because of mud. Which, I guess, is kind of just a #1 and #7 combo platter.
