I'm grinning so big right now, its funny. I won't explain too much, I'll just give you this picture.
Yeah, y'all. I got to sit on my horse. *cue ecstatic grin and squeal*
Side note: No, I don't advocate riding shoe-less by any means at all. It was a super short ride and I only kicked my shoes off for while I was actually on her.
But guys, seriously... its been about 2ish months since I last rode a horse and as soon as I sat down in the saddle, I felt so at home. I knew I had missed riding, but I didn't realize how much I had missed it until I looking through her ears and picking up the reins again.
Now I'm going to crave it.
All we did was walk around for less than 10 minutes, test the gas/brakes/steering, and so on. She's gotten a bit pushy and has more energy from being cooped up, but she was mostly responsive, just a bit unfocused.
I'm pretty pleased about this. :D
