I need something relaxing
I’ve heard riding horses and being in nature is relaxing. I love horses but don’t have much experience on them. I’ve only been on a trail ride twice in my life. I want to go riding once or twice a week. Problem is, I can’t afford to pay $40/hr at a ranch.
I’m wondering if there’s anywhere or anyone who would be willing to let me ride their horses for either less money or in return for mucking out a barn? I really just need something to relieve my stress so I can be a better mom to my kids. I’m so stressed it’s almost leading me into a depression. I work a job also, but I’m hoping someone is willing to make a deal where I can come once or twice a week, muck out their barn and then go for a ride for an hour or 2. It’s basically free labour lol. I don’t want to be paid money, just time with a horse.
I would love to buy my own horse, but they’re expensive to feed and board somewhere. Thanks
