You are Never to Old to Fly

0

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.

That’s Amore!

Winning in Life

When Olivia was four years old she attended a horse competition in jumping! She did great, rode up to the judge an d greeted. She had nothing to compare with. It was fun! I had told her early on to respect the horse, to talk and listen to the horse. “You are nothing without your horse, he is your teammate. Respect and be thankful!” I told her.

I often saw her thanking the horse by standing in front of him.

The best part was, all children won! Great message!

She grew up. Had a terrible horse accident broke her femur, but determined to get back again.

Thanks to her teachers that let her grow with time not forced tempo. Today she is a very good rider. A good rider got respect, listens and communicate with the horse.

Today she has rescued together with me four other horses that didn’t receive all the respect they should. However,there were people behind that wanted me to help them.

Olivia listens, grooms them and the. She rides them. But on their own ways.

Olivia got compassion and passion and waits patiently with the competitions. “I am not in A hurry.” She says — even if I see her heart would love too–

Thank you Olivia for being such a wise young beautiful lady, that still sees the horses soul.

That’s Amore!

Give Back

It’s fun to give back! Me and my son Max, started volunteering at my daughters school.

Delivering Popcorn twice a month to classes 6,7 and 8.

It’s a great opportunity to teach Max that giving back to the community can be very inspiring.

And even more so, to get to know new friends, meeting the teachers and the schools awesome Principal.

When we chose to do nothing, …. nothing is what we will reap.

That’s Amore!
