To ride a horse is to fly without wings. As a little girl Mikayla would always say as we were riding . "Go fast momma so I can fly" and then she would hold her arms out and say "look mom I'm flying" love her so much. :) Dude my life.
Indicative of dedication or apathy? It's a toss up really.) I'd like to pretend all my bareback riding has been because I'm tirelessly working on becoming awesome, but I'm afraid that's a bit of a stretch.
