Physical Activity... Meh...

Lately I've been having a hankering to go out and do something physical. I don't have a preference, just as long as I'm doing something. My body wants the muscles stretched. I want the muscles stretched. It feels as if they've been asleep for a long time, and it's just simply time to go out and DO something.

This is coupled with the fact that I am sorely, sorely missing horseback riding. I haven't really ridden since before my horse died in 1997, and after that maybe 2 or 3 times. I didn't get another horse after that because it was just too painful, and the horse my father has is not a manageable and now she's arthritic. Lady is proud, stubborn and headstrong, and very much an alpha mare. She likes to be the one in control, though when I did work with her to go jousting one year, MD's State Sport, she and I did come to a quiet accord - but after that I
never batted my eyes at her twice again.

I've been looking for stables where I could either get regular lessons or go riding at from time to time - guided tours or what not through the woods. Lessons at the places that are nearby are astronomically priced. I remember when they used to be $15-$20 an hour, and now they are something like $40-$50 an hour. That's not a price I can wrap my mind around, even if I know it'd be doing something I know would make me happy. I'll have to settle for finding some place that does trail rides for something more reasonable. I /think/ I've found one for $25 an hour ride. It's just walking, but when just starting out all over again, just walking is fine.

Anyway, riding is the ideal way I'd prefer to be getting my exercise. Sigh.
