Woo! I'm wired! I'm excited... I'm coiled like a spring!
I'm so excited right now! My 19th birthday is in two days, and I wasn't planning on doing nothing except going to the horse sale by myself... when my mum called! I just got off the phone, actually... She said that she wants to go horseback-riding with me for my birthday! (Granted, she has temporary custody of her three nieces and they will be going with us) but she wants to ride with me! The last time she rode with me, she swore that she was never going riding with me again because she got on the horse when I told her not to and her saddle slipped under the horse with her in it and she was really sore, plus we fought a lot during that ride... but that was a few years ago...
This is really the second-best birthday present I've ever gotten... I love my mum, but we don't see eye-to-eye on hardly anything and she really doesn't like horses that much anymore... so the fact that she's willing to come out and ride with me is completely amazing! She knows how much I love horses, and I know how much she'd rather not be around them... so it really is amazing...
It may not seem like much to any of you, but to me this means a lot. And even though my three cousins will be with us, I'm extremely glad she's going with me... I'm going to br riding my three year old Dakota and my two cousins Emily and Elizabeth (ages 9 & 10, I think) will be doubling up on Gypsie (I'll be ponying Gypsie off of Dakota because they don't know how to ride) and my mum and youngest cousin Cheyenna (age 5) will be doubling up on my great uncles' mare Buttercup.
Oh, I can't wait! I can't get the silly grin off my face now! XD!
