It’s that time again. We all vow to do better, be better, look better and feel better when the new year dawns, even though, with the best of intentions, most of what we pledge to do is abandoned by mid-January. Here are ten New Year’s resolutions that horsey people should make.
There are several of them in the house who look vaguely familiar, and they seem like nice people.
Though not on the evenings when it’s light enough and dry enough to ride. Or the day before a show. Or before a lesson. Or if I’m too tired after riding, or if I can’t be bothered to get done up…
It’s not their fault they have the wrong priorities, and I hate it when their eyes glaze over.
Even though everyone knows that children are just horse substitutes.
Or at least every second time. OK, at least once a week. Or before a show.
I appreciate that not everyone thinks eau de cheval is the best fragrance in the world.
Unless I’m really in a hurry.
Though sometimes it is kind of fun…
And I promise I won’t laugh this time.
This is the only resolution likely to last beyond 16 January 2016.
