Why do you Ride Horses?!

I ride horses because when i look at my horse, I see my hopes and dreams. I see my happiness. I see my pride and my soul. When I look in the mirror i see a person. But when i see my horse, I see myself!





Why do you like riding!!
What is your favorite moment?

I ride horses because I own horses. Now that I own horses, all my money goes to pay for my horses and I can't afford any other hobbies.

Also, if someone didn't ride Pony he would get so fat that that he couldn't get through his stall door any more.

To ride a horse is to fly without wings!

Because while the ocean brings healing to me, the horses bring me peace. They ask for very little from me, and me from them. It's nice to be in their presence because I can just be.

I forgot to mention - because you never cross the same river twice.


The horse I rode last week won't be the same horse next week and I will not be the same rider I was last week. They teach me something every time I'm with them or riding them. It never gets old.

Because hugging my bicycle and putting ropes on the handlebars, and pretending to brush it (as a kid) just wasn't the real thing.

And because people give me funny looks if I go cantering around on my broomstick.

SueC is time travelling.
