You really are the greatest thing that has ever come into my life. When I found you, I was in a sad spot of my life. Then I found you, and you turned it around. Everyone thought I was dumb for getting a horse I'd have to train from scratch. But it was a challenge I was up for. People thought you were too hot for eventing. But I believed in you, in us. I took you home. You had been mistreated, something you never deserved. But I showed you that not all people are idiots and mean.
I trained you. It was a challenge in the beginning, when you wanted to run more than anything. But once you learned that you don't have to run anymore, you listened. You caught on to everything so fast. I never had to teach you something twice. You were so smart, and you understood what you were doing right away, because you loved it.
When we started jumping, I felt like I was flying. Jumping with school horses was fun enough and it taught me, but nothing could compare to this.
We moved up so fast, you obviously love every minute of it.
We are so alike. You've been a loner your whole life, you stayed away from the crowd and did your own thing and you didn't care. You weren't treated right by others. We never put up with each other's crap, either. :) You're stubborn, and so am I. But you'd also never do anything to hurt anyone, you're extremely friendly and sweet. You can be hotheaded at times, but it's okay because I'm the same way. You love to run. I can tell you feel free when you run. And when I run with you, I finally feel at peace. We were practically made for each other.
This past summer when I developed a suicidal depression, and lost all the people I trusted, you were there. You literally saved my life. Without you, I never would have had the strength to overcome that dark time, which I'm still doing. But now I know that no matter how hard it gets, you're always going to be there.
You are, by far, the best friend I've ever had. You are my other half. I don't deserve a horse like you. But I'm so glad I was lucky enough to get you.
Not only have I taught you, but you have taught me so much. You taught me to trust, to love, to live in the moment and not worry about the past or the future, but to only think of what is happening now. You've taught me to be kind no matter how hard my past was. You've truly made me a better person.
Flash, I promise I will NEVER sell you. You will never be mistreated again. You will be with me until our days are done.
I love you, Flashy Trend. Don't ever forget it.
