A day or two ago someone asked me what makes riders giddy about horses and the prospect of riding. I didn't really know the answer then and I still don't, but today I was asking myself why I bother. It was super windy this morning and a storm was blowing in, but I had to let the 7 horses and ponies out to pasture, and it was pretty hectic. They all have their buddies of course, so no matter what order I did it in someone was feeling left behind, and they were all being very pushy and one especially almost ran me over as I was opening the pasture gate, so I asked myself "Why DO I get giddy about this? This sucks, I could be doing something way less stressful right now".
And yet, despite all of that, I had a productive day with three of them after the weather calmed down and I have a day of horsey stuff planned for Sunday and I already have that weird butterfly feeling again. I honestly have no reason for why I love doing it so much, because a lot of the time it would be so much easier to be an interior designer, and yet I can't even remotely picture myself being happy doing anything else for the rest of my life.
So I'm going to ask this again to anyone who might be reading this- Do any of you guys have a reasonable explanation of why this phenomenon occurs? I sure don't, and would love ya'll's opinion.
