I’ve started something new this week.
I’ve always loved horses – in grade school I would always write about horses and unicorns. My room was decorated with horse items. I loved all of it. I remember once mom helped me write a book- I was in grade 4 I think and it was about horse, how I wanted one, one I had met at a farm we went too, and a few other nonsense childish things. I still have it today 🙂
So besides riding ponys, I had no real horse experience. Until this past week I started riding Blossom. Shes about 24, super sweet- though a tad out of shape haha, can’t get much of a trot out of her yet.
I’ve ridden her 3 times this week – my ass is so sore. But I’ve been pretty happy this week. Since mom passed I’ve been “mulling” through the weeks slightly aimlessly, sure I had goals and things to do but I really had nothing there to put a good long-lasting smile on my face. But let me tell you, riding this old mere sure does just that- I have a HUGE kiddish smile on my face. I just love it. I feel so stress less and as if I have no problems, even though physically I’m sore.
I just love it.
And ever so gratefully, my BEST friend got me two riding lessons which I plan on taking very soon. And my Boyfriend got my an additional two riding lessons 😀 EEK, this just really, all of this puts me in such a good mood.
