There are max 6 boarders at my barn, we don’t have scheduled rides as the odds of us all being there at the same time is almost not likely.
I am riding as much as I was in the summer or the year before Covid even happened. I don’t know how people who don’t have a hobby or who’s hobbies have been cancelled due to Covid are managing.
My mental health would be insanely bad without being able to ride my horse, I know its pathetic, but he’s what gets me out of the house and active. I am at the barn 7 days a week, riding or not. He’s 17, with KS and arthritis in his hocks. He needs to keep moving for his own health as well.
The odds of me going to the hospital are higher risk with my drive to the office or to the barn. Less risk at the barn. I’ve had him for 14 years, the only time I seem to fall off is when I’m cross country schooling and have a dirty stop LOL! It’s winter, so I’m not too worried about that scenario.
Keep on riding if it keeps you happy!
