I galloped!
I haven't galloped on Vida since I fell off last fall. Well we were on our anniversary trail ride. My husband had to get off his horse to open a gate. Normally his horse will stand without him hanging onto her. This time she decided to take a little trip without him. This is on a 7000 acre cattle ranch mind you, so she could have gone a LONG way. I took off after her at a gallop finally catching her about 1/4 mile away. I was so proud of myself :D I forgot how much fun it can be. I guess I wasn't thinking about anything except catching Fras so my anxiety went out the window.

That is awesome Vida. I love to gallop, I used to be scared after I fell off doing it once as well but once I did it again after so long it felt good and was a big confidence booster. I'm even brave enough to ask for it while bareback every now and again, given the horses are behaving well and all. :wink:

You forget how awesome it feels and then after you do it you whisk your hair back and go "Gee why'd I wait so long?!?"

Cool! Our mares love it when I let them have a free rein and gallop along the fields...and you can just feel the power underneath you.
