Goodbye, Rupert.

Rupert was put down. I do not know the details, but I know his breathing problems were getting much worse lately and he could not be ridden.
I have so much to thank him for. I wish I could tell him. He gave me the confidence boost I needed, that without I would never be able to ride like I do today. I would never have helped trained Roger. I would never have wanted to canter a horse like Chief, much less jump him. I would have cried at the thought of riding Chief. He gave me love. He tried so hard to do whatever I wanted, no matter how hard it was for him. I will never be able to repay him-- but I will always love him.
I've finally started crying. I can't believe he's gone. I need him here.. it's crazy to believe I'll never see him again. That he won't be there to greet me every time I go to the barn. It's really starting to hit me.
Well, I love you, baby, goodbye.. ♥

Awww Nellie I'm so sorry *HUGS*!!!!!!

somewhere behind the rider you've become the hours of practice you've put in & the coaches that have pushed you is the little girl who fell in love with the sport and never looked back. ride for her.
