Smokey on Sunday

On Sunday it all came together. Smokey was brilliant. Best horse ever. Amazing.

I'm not sure what was in the hay, but I'm buying more of it.


We started out in the arena and he was so responsive I decided "the heck with this, let's hit the trails." And we did. Alone.

I had fingertip control. We stayed in our comfort zone, given all that's going on I wasn't up for an adventure beyond riding alone.

I felt such a strong tie to him. I felt like I knew what to do every moment. It was a day I really really needed.

BTW: Mighty heart update on crib notes.

There's nothing better than a good day with your horse. I hope you enjoy more soon!

Those are the rides we live for.
Is it possible that you could put a link to Crib Notes on your sidebar? I'll keep Sierra in my prayers.

PS: I left you a little award on my blog :)

Those days are great when you're both in sync. Like us, they have their good days and bad days. I'm glad this was a good day for both of you.

Isn't that the greatest?! I am really glad for you. Hope it continues now on every ride. ;-)

Breathe--So glad your ride was awesome. Also, I can't find my way to "Crib Notes". Could you put a link up? I am thinking of Sierra and hope she's doing well.

Breathe, "Fingertip control" - I love it. Sounds like such a great ride. He is really coming along (even though he may have times like the windy day). Great post!!
