So there I was....at one of the only roping arenas on island watching some guys team rope.....
And out of the blue one of the guys rides over to the fence, waves me over, and asks if I'd like to ride?! Well duh!
So he just hops right off his super awesome mare and let's me climb on, while he gets on his other gelding.
We get to talking as we ride and find out he's a header. .well super convenient that I'm a heeler right? Lol so he continues to blow my mind and offers me a heeling rope and off we go to the chutes to team rope for 4 hours!!! I have officially died and gone to heaven by this point, when again...for like the bazillionth time he offers to let me ride with them next weekend....
Okay...maybe I can like Hawaii now....
I mean really...I'm all for letting friends use my horses and I have on countless occasions loaned out my horses for friends at rodeos and brandings etc when they need another mount, but singling someone (well admittedly I was the only one in the bleachers with a very I'm sure longing look on my face...who can blame me? I haven't roped in 3 yrs and its sooo addicting) out to come ride your horse and then give wm a rope and let them rope with you foe four hours....awesome.
So yes. Castle today= Mind. BLOWN.
Am I the only one this has happened to????
First of all! Thanks for what you are doing.
It is so neat that you found what you like to do in a new place, an Island, that is smaller then most U.S. States. Your new friend MUST have been able to read you and knew what to do. Rare to find such people that ... do. You, hopefully, have a friend for life.
Good for you and all your new friends.
