You are never to old to try new things. As a matter of fact, I will always remember a friends words to me, “Mia, when you stop living that’s when you become old.”
I started to ride a year ago — I think– I am not much for lessons, I get very bored quickly– same for our rescue horse Miracle.
I like to be together with him, listening to what he likes to do. And then, I follow his desire.
Riding out in the Forrest is with mixed feelings. In the start he walks in a good tempo, and we can both look around the beautiful nature. Then, he desires for trotting, then faster and faster. If he could decide, we would cantor through the woods, happily. Even if I would be terrified.
Miracle is 27 year old former school horse from southern Italy. At their place their were no pastures, only outdoor arena and then he would be back in his box.
Where he stays now, it is heavenly with nature, pastures, in and outdoors arenas. He got a big box and a lot of healthy food.
Sometimes we look at the people jumping, and my daughters jumping lessons. It looks fun!
I asked Miracle if he wanted to jump, and he gladly did jump a bunny jump. His ears were forward, his speed fast and …..landed perfectly and made some rodeo happy kicks.
Me, I closed my eyes
thank you. Olivia my daughter for coaching and giggling when your mom is riding. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t do this.
Miracle, my love, you are bringing out my joy and fear inside of me. How amazing you are.
