    Re: [RC] nonriding husbands in camp! - long - Tiffany D'Virgilio

    I'm married to  a professional musician. We have been together since we were
    20, now we are 33. Before he got successful, I toted his gear, set up his
    drums, sat at so many late gigs I was bleary eyed. I was there because I
    supported him and believed in him. Now he has roads and crew people on tour
    to do those things.
    At the Norco ride he woke up on three hours of sleep, hustled himself down
    there and crewed for me and my mare all day with a smile. Toted my gear and
    sat bleary eyed. All because he loves and supports me and my dreams too.
    I believe you get back what you put in. He isn't really that horsey, but he
    tries. He feeds, cleans and has allowed me to move us to "this Godforsaken
    area" so that I can have unlimited trails and horse property.
    Like Angie, I try to be pleasant, ask him when it is good for me to ride,
    ask him to watch the kids so I can ride, etc. My girlfriend was envious
    because her hubby could care less how or what she did at that ride. I'm
    eternally grateful for my wonderful husband, and he for me. I suffer through
    months of being alone, juggling work, kids, horses, when he is on tour, so
    he balances it out by giving back to me.
    I'm happy to do for him because he does for me. I love having him at rides,
    so I would never complain about any little thing he might do wrong. He is
    there and supports and that is what matters.
    In short, non riding hubbies in camp are a good thing!
