Today seemed like as good a day as any to face my fears. Given that I feel like my world is in an upside down shit storm and all.
After exactly 16 weeks I got back on my naughty horse and went for a ride.
If that sounds easy, it wasn’t. I brought him into the corral and tacked him up. This was much easier than the last time I sat on him on September 30. Then I barely had any mobility and I just sat on his back for a couple of minutes
The next part turned out to be much harder than I anticipated. It took me almost a half hour of standing beside him before I found the courage to climb back on. Remember he’s been off since I turfed myself the end of July – he had some energy.
But I finally did. And as we walked we both relaxed a little bit. And I faced a fear. It reminded me I am strong enough to walk the scary paths.
Oh this horse. He is happiness. Scary happiness but happiness.
