I doubt my wife would hunt if her life depended on it. She knows how good venison & turkey tastes and how good it is for you, but she couldn't deliver the shot for any reason. I tolerate her equestrian obsession and she doesn't fuss about my hunting & enjoying my hockey season tickets (Go Hurricanes!). When we first got together, she was more worried about what I was doing than I was. It was like she had a stopwatch on me & if I was 3 minutes late, it gave her license to b!%&h.
I remembered that she rode & showed horses as a kid, so I found a schooling barn where she could get back into it. That may have been the smartest thging I've ever done, it may also be the stupidest thing I've ever done. First, she had to get her own horse, as the schools horse she wanted to ride might already be out or just cooling down from being ridden. With that comes lessons, tack, clothes, a trailer to get the horse to shows, then she was using my hunting truck to pull the trailer. On to eventing competitions all over the place. Of course, I'd whole lot rather have her riding her horse's @$$ than mine. Just sayin'
To be fair, she has won horse of the year with her horse for the entire state three times, and together they have wons shows from Georgia up to Virginia. She even won tops in their region and has been nationally ranked for years. You don't get that good without LOTS of practice. She spends hours at that farm & even more time at competitions.
Now, I should be the clock watcher, but I know how miserable that was when it was happening to me & it didn't accomplish much back then, it won't now.
I pretty much come & go at will, because she can't say a thing.
Luck Counts, good or bad
