Back in the Saddle

Boy was it good to be back in the saddle. I haven't been on a horse since before my kids were born. It's been at least a decade.

But one day, sort of out of the blue, I said to a friend, "... if you ever need a riding buddy....."

My experience is limited - no more than a dozen times have I sat on the back of a horse. It has always been thoroughly enjoyable. I've loved it.

This time was no exception.

Yes, I have more of the images of the people I've cared for in the land of Trauma, following their equine accidents stored in the recesses of my brain, but still. Up I went. And, I loved it.

I'm grateful for this friendship, and this opportunity. I'm grateful for the internal nudge that put the request to ride out there.

Next time... more cantering.
