    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 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.

    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.
