Me and a friend would play in her barn at night. The stalls all had holes where you could toss hay into each stall through the holes. We would take turns jumping down through the holes and seeing who could land on her old horses back.
Same friend had a neighbor who raised racehorses. She had a track built and we would wait till 2 in the morning when everyone was asleep, and would race the horses around the track in the dark.
Me and a boy who I had a.crush on when I was a teenager taught the horses how to rear. We would take off across the arena full speed, pull the horses up and make them rear in unison.
I thought it would be fun to pretend the horses in the pasture were cows, and would try to round them up like cattle on horseback. A good swift shod kick to my shin stopped that.
If I only knew.then what I knew now. I am proud to say I am a much better horsewoman these days.
