Let’s Go For a Ride

Question for your next round! 🙂 If you were given the opportunity to up and move to a new town or city and do anything you wanted; which town/city would you select, what would you do and why? ~By Abbitude Problem

Great question this week from My Abbitude Problem! You should do yourself a favor and go visit their page! 👍

I’ve moved a lot already in my lifetime, but if I had the opportunity, and I am assuming money would be no object in this question, as it wasn’t mentioned, then I would love to own a horse ranch right here in Washington. I guess that would mean that I would live outside the city a ways, so picking one in particular isn’t really necessary lol. Breeding and training them was a dream of mine when I was still just a teenager. I absolutely love horses, but they are expensive and to be honest I haven’t been riding since I was a kid. If I had the money and the means to change that though, I definitely would.

I still find myself admiring other people’s horses as I drive by, and during the local fair/rodeo each year. The stables are one of the first places I head to visit before rides or attractions. Most people can’t stand the smell of the manure, but it doesn’t bother me and I love the smell of the leather and saddle soap. There is just something therapeutic about being out on a ride.. just you being one with nature. Call me crazy. lol

Well that’s it for this weeks Ask Phoebe. I hope you’ll join me next week for another post and please.. KEEP THOSE QUESTIONS COMING! 😀

  1. I’ve never been much of animal person myself, but for someone like yourself who loves horses, that sounds like a fun adventure!! Thank you for sharing. I often wonder what it would be like to just up and move to a new place on a whim, and not because I have to move due to life circumstances i.e. a new job.

    • You’re welcome, and thank you again for the question. 🙂

      I have moved a total of 6 times — on a whim. No job lined up.. no place to live picked out, or rented in advance, just packed up and went and winged the rest. It was easier the first few times. The later ones were harder due to the economy, but still doable. I’ve regretted a few things with each move, but never the experiences it gave me. 🙂

      • Wow! That is pretty impressive and bold! I’ve always wanted to do something like that, but was either never in the position to do so or just scared.

        • I honestly never really had the funds either and I was always a little (sometimes a lot) scared, but I always just thought, you only live once. Carpe Diem. So I just took a deep breath and plunged forward. It always worked out in the end. 🙂

  2. I have never been a horse person myself, but I am a cyclist, so I can totally relate to being out on a ride and being one with nature Phoebe. Plus without a horse to share the work it is great exercise. Notice I said SHARE the work, because I DO realize that horseback riding is good exercise as well. Lots of people don’t realize that so much I think. BTW did you mean Washington State, or DC? Washington state is beautiful when it isn’t raining. lol. I am a Northern California boy myself.

      • And I love Northern California, and the Bay Area. I have been here all my life. I am envious of your brave and adventurous soul however. I admire the heart it takes to travel on faith and hope. You must have so many stories. There is another outlet for your blog. Phoebe’s tales of a traveler. Just another thing to add to your already content rich blog. I love how diverse you are.

        • Some might say heart and faith and others might call it pure stupidity, but either way I have no regrets. I do have a few tales, indeed. You just might have a great idea there. 😉 Thank you for all your encouragement and love. The feeling is truly mutual. xo
