    Oooh, sounds like Rocky couldn’t stop horsing around!

    *crickets*

    But really, it sounds like Rocky was a stroppy teenage horse, except you couldn’t ground him or take away his car keys, and he *could* potentially trample your ribs into rib-dust. So I think you made a good decision.

      Rocky was like 102 years old and his cranky ass knew my cranky ass just wasn’t into it, so he made the executive decision to separate our asses. What an ass. (well, technically not an ASS, he’s a horse.)

    I’m with you, Quitter. Horses are a bumpy ride.

    I think after you are old enough to make your own decisions, it’s not quitting. If you were 15, begged your parents for the lessons, they paid for it, and THEN you decided Rocky was a jerk and you hated him, THAT would be quitting.

    But you’re an adult, you used your own money for the lessons, during which you discovered Rocky was a jerk and you hated him. I call this an amendment. 😉

      The best part is Google put a “horse therapy” ad next to this article trying to match content. I NEED therapy after that horse! 🙂

      Thank you for being so gracious with your opinion of me…

      LOL! Thanks – that’s Navigator, my horse. When we got him I said “I’ll call him Navi!” and the owner said “… we call him Gator…” Duh… *hand to forehead*

    I can totally relate to this post. Minus all the horse stuff.

    I am the same when it comes to quitting. Especially TV shows and movies. I pretty much never stop watching a movie until it is over no matter how bad it is. And I’ve finished out a few TV series that I was well past finding any enjoyment in.

    But also similar to you, now that I am older I have been more willing to “make a wiser decision” then continue doing something that I’m not getting any benefit from.

      I JUST stopped doing that, like a year or so ago. Used to be once I started a movie I’d watch it no matter how wretched it was.

    *snort* Kulats.

    I think the first time a horse threw me off, I’d be done. I’m impressed you stuck it out for awhile after that.

      Cheap way to get a laugh, wasn’t it? Who doesn’t laugh when they hear “kulats?” 🙂

      It was fun back when we did it as kids… this time, I MIGHT have had 5 minutes of that glorious tired feeling you get after doing good work… and then I was just sore.

    I can relate to this very much. The last time I was on a horse it bucked me off and while I was lying on the ground dazed it turned around and tried to trample me. Luckily I am small and by some small miracle I jumped through a tiny hole in the fence just in time. Quitting riding horses is a good choice!
