The Covid numbers in Ontario are not great. The Provincial government announced they are imposing a lockdown on the entire province. Or maybe just on the south of the province. Or maybe not a complete lockdown just increased restrictions. Or maybe it will be like the lockdown in the spring and the barns will all be closed and I will not be riding. Or maybe it won’t be like that. Whatever it is going to be it will start on Dec. 26 and 12:01 am.
What? If the numbers are bad and the hospitals are under stress then why let Christmas go unchecked. People will be all over the province, visiting indoors and exchanging virus molecules. I reached a point today when I just thought: “I’ve had it. I can’t deal with any more of this.” So I went our for a ride in the forest. I went along our favorite trail , the goat trail.
As we walked through the snow I thought; “I have the best horse. I can take him out in the snow, on his own, and he helps me to restore my sanity and equilibrium .”
That is what I did today.
