I forgot how great it is...

to sit atop a horse and listen to the clip-clop of her hooves, the squeak of the saddle, the sound of her breath as she snorts at the wind. I forgot how great it is to feel the rhythmic sway of the horse beneath your rear as you relax and go with her smooth beat. I forgot about the smells, the exhilaration of being far out in the country, away from laundry, dishes, dirty floors, schoolwork and bills.

I'm definitely sore this evening. Can hardly move my shoulder. My hips hurt, my knees hurt, my butt bones hurt.

But I feel GREAT, because I went riding for the first time in over three years.

Ask me how I feel tomorrow. :D


  1. Yay! :D

    I should go riding one of these days. I'll have to stop being such a chicken, but who knows anything is possible. :)

    Glad you had fun! Hope you're not too sore!

    ps my WV was "whimpl", which I thought was a little mean of your computer.

  2. Sore. Definitely a "whimp!". My mean computer is right. :D

  3. It was fun. And you did great,

    Next time,

    the TROT!!

  4. I miss it. Glad you got brave and got on mom!
