Those moments when two become as one =)

Today was one of those rides. The sky was blue, the birds were singing...

1st glorious trail ride through Great Brook State Park (MA) a bucolic, trail riding paradise. When I was nervous, he was steady & when scary deer/horse eating boulders appeared on the trails, he turned to ME for comfort (instead of letting the rubber hit the road ;)

Ever have one of those rides where you feel your bond, ability and confidence grow?

Sometimes they're the perfect days like today, other times (like this wk) when you managed to JUST STAY ON.

He's not perfect and my riding is FAR from it. But today, it was perfect.

I'm glad you had a nice ride :)

And yes, those rides aren't few and far inbetween. Lately everytime I go out we have a wonderful ride and I am always pleasantly surprised.

But nothing beats riding my own horse. Can't wait till I can do that again!

Yes, I know the feeling! It always feels great to have one of those peaceful, relaxing rides. I also love those moments riding when a new skill you have been working on finally "clicks" and you have that lightbulb moment where you know you are finally doing it right!

Absolutely! My last ride before I came back home to CO was one of those rides... It was disappointing, in a way, because I was so proud of how we rode... and then it would be months before I could ride again.

So glad to hear that you had one of those rides! They are so special <3
