I'm always paranoid my horse hates riding because sometimes he won't let me bridle him, but last night was amazing. He let me bridle him, OK so I snuck him a cookie as a reward. We were riding, my first time back on his back... in almost a month. (tear) It was amazing. He was so excited, his ears were up, he was alert and just happy. After we warmed up and jogged around a little, we have a hill in the pasture right next to the arena so I opened the gets and asked him to trot so he did, he wanted to canter, I could just feel it so gave a tiny little squeeze and he blasted off, he cantered up the hill and we were heading back down and I let him go again and he was tossing his head and he threw his front legs out like a little foal does and kicked up a back leg and was just being a big excited goofball! I swear I could see him smiling int he barn mirrors when we got back inside. It made me feel so missed by him! I could cry. It's times like that that remind me my horse DOES want to be with me *sappy* The cute thing is I dropped the rope and let him meander around while I latched the gate and walked over to the mounting block and he just sidled over and looked at me like "You wanted to get on?"
