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.
Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed. SO TRUE !
