Not sure how I'm going to break this to the coach because I never know what she's going to say. I liked ihsa, and our team is great. However, first things first and that's school for me. I'm going to be a senior next year (technically super senior) and I don't really want the stress of the show environment to bog me down. Especially not in my final year. I just feel a tad bit bad because I've just been a walk-trotter about to point out. I don't really care for the college show atmosphere, and want to do riding as a de-stresser. We have a barn on campus and I guess I can do club or a riding class (again). As much as I love horses, I can't say it didn't stress me out knowing about an upcoming show, riding three times a week and school work suffering because of some of that. That and work created a lot on my plate. I've placed top three several times, got nine ribbons and I'm calling it quits. At least I got the experience. Anyone else feel/felt similar riding in college ihsa?
