Tonight was a poor evening.. PMS-ing and riding like crap. -.-

 I get extremely bad PMS. I mean, shockingly bad. Tears (so many tears..out of nowhere. Wailing, the lot) anger, hissy fits, rudeness.. you name it. I can't lie, my extraordinary PMS-ing doesn't fit well with horses. Sometimes I don't even know i'm about to have a ''fit'' lol until it's too late. 

Its a tuesday and every tuesday I have my lesson. I've actually been doing really well and have made some decent progress which is good. I took pony out too warm him up and then came back for my lesson. I actually took him out and did quite a lot with him yesterday just incase I couldn't ride tonight etc. 

I knew as soon as I started having my lesson, something was wrong *sighs*. I was riding really negatively - I had no energy and I think it really reflected on Parsley.. I did not ride him forwards and positively and he picked up on it - he was like 'ugh.. cannot be bothered. Sorry.' 

We were only like 10 minutes in and I'm not gonna lie, the tears came. I mean they literally came like a bloody waterfall. I apologised (alot lol!) and promised I stopped but I couldn't. Not cool lol. My instructer was really good about it as she was just as bad as me at her age and said I could stop if I wanted too. I took her up on it and ended it there - I was not in the mood, Parsley was not in the mood, I was riding like poo and I was deeply miserably. Wandered back onto the yard (full of like 10 people) and wailed some more. I couldn't stop. This happens all the time.. I think everything thinks I'm so weird, I even got some sympathy hugs. It passed and I was miserable..but not wailing. The calm AFTER the storm lol. 

It happens far too much. UGH. Cookie for your if you made it through all of that..

 Wah I'm exactly like this! Have decided never to ride around when they get the worst as I can get really aggressive and Woody senses it and gets frightened. I just go up and groom, by myself, when the yard is quiet and just be calm! I feel your pain!

 Yep. Count me out for riding this week. I hate to say it, but I get impatient and frustrated with Parsley which is not like me at all, so for both of our sakes, he can have the rest of the week off. It isn't fair. -.-

 I'm the same, I get frustrated so quickly and I'm nasty to Woody, then after I feel so guilty!

 I can't lie, I get the same. It's not even his fault and it isn't fair on him so I end up cutting out riding altogether so that there is nothing to trigger me with him. :/

In the grand scheme of things, it's nothing to him but it doesn't make it right so I'm vowing my abstinence from riding for the week until I feel like I can keep my (normal!) cool head lol!

Hope you feel better soon, Char - my daughter was just the same as you, started on the pill, and was so much better for it.

Hi Charlotte, sorry that you had such a miserable lesson, I do understand how you feel though, the joys of being a woman lol ! Maybe next time it would be better for you and parsley to hack out instead and then have a lesson when you are feeling fit and well. If you are really suffering badly with your PMS your GP may be able to help. Don't worry about riding like crap it happens to us all and we don't always have a good excuse lol. Take care, I hope that you feel better soon. XX

 Thanks guys. It's so weird, I genuinely think Parsley picked up on it - I lacked enthusiasm which made me in a 'can't be bothered mood'. It was a dreadful evening. After that, everything was setting me off crying. Infront of so many people, it's funny though cos I don't even care anymore down the yard because it happens more often than not.. Bring on the first day so I can start taking my pill!  The Yourhorse ladies are wonderful.

 Awww, Char. At least you only have 'fits' - at the moment I'm moody all the time. :/ I don't take it out on the horses though, just on people! Ah well, the joys of being a teenager.
