I love Horses
I just love horses. Arabians hold a special place in my heart. I never thought that I would be without a horse. I grew up riding and competing with Endurance riding and Ride n tie being my favorite. Just as ultra running does now, Endurance riding took me to some very special trails and lots of beautiful country. I miss those days when I could walk outside my door and ride for hours, with dogs in tow. Sometimes, our cat would slink along behind until he just couldn't keep up anymore. I would be so worried about him until I got home to find him waiting quietly on the door mat. Tonight I remember those days when life was more simple. I was young and didn't have the worries that I have today. I thank God for the incredible life I have had and for the great memories. I am so thankful for the horses and the experiences that I had with those beautiful animals. One day I will compete again. Sometimes I feel like I just can't wait until I do. I hope today brings you down memory lane to a time that was special for you. Have a good one.
