I had my last ride (and lesson) today on Pepe. I learnt to ride on this horse in the last 11months, going from a girl who could not rise trot, was bucked/thrown/bolted off, to the confident rider I am today.Today is the day that I will no longer be riding him, as he is leaving to be leased and possibly sold to one of my riding friends.
This horse, along with my instructors, has taught me the good and the bad of horse riding with a few tumbles along the way (all which were my fault, except one).
We have had our ups and downs, but over the time we have created a bond strong enough to get us through the hard times and laugh together with the good times.
I'm going to miss this boy, but I am very happy knowing his new owner will take exceptional care for him.
Below are a few pictures from the last couple rides.
He will be leaving tomorrow, after I help his new owner/leasee wash him, I have been invited to come with him to his new home and visit him.
This quirky horse will always hold a special place in my heart.
