My goodbye video

This is the first "artistic" video I've ever edited.

In September of 2010, I met a horse that would teach and inspire me to be the person/rider I am today. It has been the most wonderful year of my life so far, I owe you everything, Vinnie.

I will be graduating this coming May, and my life will take me places that Vinnie cannot go. I wish my future included him, but it simply cannot. I am forced to sell this guy, and I have a potential buyer coming in just two weeks. I've known for months, but it has just hit me that I will actually have to see this horse go.

It is tough, SO very tough, but it must be done. Now I just have to find him the home that he deserves.



Let me know what you think. Any advice is awesome. Sorry if its boring/too long, but I know the horse so at least it means something to me lol. I seriously need to quit watching it. I'm on the verge of crying!

***ALSO***
The footage was shot today by my 7 year old sister; it is shakey but it gets the point across. I left the audio in at 1:26 when sister says "look at her beautiful horse and her" because it really touched me when I went back to edit through the clips.

This was so fun to shoot. To get shots of everything, I told lil sis to pretend that we were making a "commercial" about how to ride horses :)

Aw that's so sweet! Glad you liked it.

I don't think it is as sad as I originally thought, I was just emotional that day!! Lol
