|NOT my little muffin;)|
Oftentimes, one sees the word "karma", and thinks negatively. There's good karma, and bad karma ... obviously, we tend to reap what we sow! I believe I'm finally about to reap me some GOOD karma :)
When Tiki was my little muffin, I offered him up to several of my good riding kids as an experience for them. A few took me up on the offer, but not too many. LR was more of a mutually beneficial thing; she got the experience, Tiki got a fantastic schooling ride. I now find myself in the somewhat awkward position of being "horseless and broke", which doesn't always bode well for riding. As stated in my earlier blog post, I'm trying to work out something with a local trainer to exchange lessons for "work", but in the mean time I received a "pm" in my COTH inbox today.
Lo and behold, it's a fellow CA cother with an ottb not too far from me. She seems to have found herself in a position similar to mine previously. Nice green horse that could use more miles under saddle, and a limited schedule that gives her only 2-3 days per week to ride. I see a potentially mutually beneficial arrangement in the works! We've made a plan to meet up so we can meet "in the flesh", and I can sit on said horse and see if I'd like to ride her! Yay, something to blog about! Lol. In the mean time, I plan to continue to try and do the 'lesson' thing as well, I'm just sensing opportunity here and intend to jump on it! I'm glad that by my giving back, and doing things for my students for 'free' (I shipped not only Tiki, but also Star and Sparky out to PWF several times just for the sheer heck of it), maybe I'm getting a little bit of 'cosmic justice':) Looking forward to finally getting to sit on a horse for the first time since JUNE.
