    I look back with great fondness to being with my horse before I had my kids, when Spike was my only "baby". I was able to ride 5 or 6 days a week, and we were so connected. We were both fearless, and he would go wherever I asked him. We used to show off on trail rides by crossing back and forth over the deep ditches that the other horses refused to cross. We used to ride along a busy highway that has a grassy strip about 20 feet wide alongside it. I would get Spike cantering, then drop the reins and put out my arms like I was flying. (Again with the showing off. I guess I used to be a real smart a**, lol)
    Things are a lot different today. I have 2 kids, ages 7 and 2 that take up a lot of time. I have recently separated, so I am dealing with all that fun stuff. So I only see Spike maybe 2x a week right now, and rarely get to ride more than 1/2 hr 2x a month. He is still a great horse, because I put so much work in him in the past, but it is hard to maintain that level of connection when the quantity of time is so short.
    Enjoy your horse as much as you can, you never know what the future may bring!

    My favorite memory with Victor is probably the first time we jumped. I imagine it probably wasn't a pretty sight and I'm glad no one was around to watch (hehe), but I'll never forget the way it felt. It was like slow motion- I felt his front feet lift off the ground and that brief second when all four feet were in the air was priceless. And what made it more special was that he doesn't even like jumping, but he put up with me anyway. Considering how crabby he usually is, I still can't believe he did that for me. He can be a sweetheart when he wants to be.
