…is feeling free, as if you could do anything. Few people ever realize that yes, horse-back riding could sometimes be looked at as being more of a sport for the horse than the rider, but those people also don’t understand the effort and training it takes to make it look that way. To me, riding is all about forming a bond with your horse and understanding the way your mount thinks- after all, you’re not driving a car, but you’re rather driving a quite unpredictable if not wild animal.
Right now, you’re probably thinking of moving on to another blog post or running away from my blog altogether. However, I haven’t explained my point in detail yet, so might just as well stick around.
You know that first sentence, the one about feeling free? I have several details that I’d like to point out for that. I used to feel like my only true, perfect friends were horses, probably because just like dogs, they don’t ever betray you. They don’t ever hate you (unless, obviously, you’re that tyrant that drives his horses to death, but since that thought makes me sad, I’ll just move on). Horses also make you feel like they understand everything you tell them, but can keep a secret.
Riding has a lot to do with friendship.
Horses. If God ever created something more beautiful, he kept it to himself.
