I saw Gidget Gallop towards me

This morning I went to the stable and went to go see Gidget after I turned Bambi out for the day. I called her name and she started walking and then all of the sudden she got down kinda low and off she went! Her back legs were so far forward that they were up by her forelegs and the earth came flying up into the air. The sound of thundering hooves. I stood there in amazement and also began to laugh. I couldn't believe she began to gallop my way when she saw me. I knew she wouldn't run over me..I trust her with my life...she flew past me and the wet ground continued to fly while she was coming down to a lope and then she stopped before she hit the chain linked fence. I led her into the the stall for breakfast since the other horses will chase her off.

I willl always remember that moment. It makes me smile. I love her so much

I remember the first time my RB horse Pride actually stayed at the gate when I was going to leave...I couldn't help but go back to him for some more lovin, and treats. When I walked off again, he still stayed there, until I was in my car and backing out. That was after 2 years of owning him.

My mare, unless she is pigging out, will follow me up the paddock and stand at the gate while I get in my car to leave too. Such a good feeling!

thats beautiful1! this is kinda a weord story.
Me and my friend were down with the horses waiting for my new TB to arrive. I was leading tess when she got freaked out and kicked out and ran forward and got me in the face! while my mouth was pouring out blood, i wqs screaming on the ground, my friend was frozen to the spot, tess started running but suddenly stopped and spun around. it was like she thought "crap, ive killed my human!" and came running back to me and licked the blood of my face!
weired or what?

Awww, yes! What a nice treat for you!

It's so funny, there's nothing better than feeling loved by your horse :) Especially when they are galloping around or acting like lunatics but then settling in to be polite as soon as they get close to you.

I made a video on my cellphone of my dork-face doing that and it makes me smile so much. I don't think non-horse owners can really understand why it's so special
