Please Miss! I can answer that.

When putting down a list of hobbies, many people automatically write down
things their subconscious says it enjoys. This happens even when the last
time that activity was performed/enjoyed was many years ago. My subC says it
enjoys riding. I rode very regularly from the ages of 11-21, and then
stopped when I got pregnant. (I was very sick.)  While my children grew out
of babyhood, my pony grew into OldHorseHood and died, alas, at the age of
28. I've ridden only a handful of times since. I still enjoy it when I get
the chance, but it costs too much and it's also too dangerous when a broken
wrist could render me unable to work. If I had my own pony, I would be safe,
but unknowns are always chancy.

So - I still think (and occasionally say) I love to ride. That's what my
SubC wants me to say.
