Back in the Saddle

29 Dec

Apparently riding a horse is like riding a bike…it’s one of those things you just don’t forget. After more than 6 months without riding, I figured I’d be pretty rusty, but the moment I was in the saddle, everything came back. A few forgotten reasons why I love being a cowgirl…

  • The smell of horses or barns (horse-lovers – you know what I mean)
  • Cantering with the wind in your hair (quite possibly the closest you can get to flying)
  • Trusting a being larger than yourself with your life (definitely a humbling experience)
  • Realizing that, even for just a few moments, you can forget everything and just exist

I already can’t wait to be back.
