I know your 'just' a horse, well that's what they say, but 'they' don't know that your saving me. You've made me cry, laugh and scream with anger, I gave up on you countless times, but you never gave up on me. You were always there with your big brown eyes, staring at me untill I gave it another try again and again.
I wonder how you got to be so strong, I see those scars on your rump and wonder how you can trust another human when all they do is let you down. You taught me to be kind, willing and never give up on my dreams because if I don't aim for them, it's worse then failing.
3 months ago you were an annoyance in my life, I didn't want to ride and I always had to put you first and I hated it. How could I have been that stupid, I put material things before you and often you went unridden for weeks on end. I am sorry, I am sorry that I let a stupid boy come between family, between the only thing I have ever been passionate about. He hurt me and took so much from me, but I didn't mean to hurt you.
Joe you may be just a horse to people that don't understand, but to me you are my rolemodel, my teacher and my greatest friend. You will always be my heart horse, and I hope I will always be your 'favourite human' because I will never let you down like I did before.
This is our year.
