I Have Galloped On a Horse

Yee Haaaaa!!!!! 146 People

    That Wind In My Hair!

    I loved riding horses as a young teenager. I'm so glad I was able to have that experience. I used that to escape the pressures of junior high and high school. Just me and my horse. The feel of rocketting off into the unknown is magical. Horses are so dynamic and intense. They...

    Feeling Free...

    When I was younger, I would go to my aunt's house to ride her horse with my wee cousin and her pony. We would go out on hacks through the woods and the fields and race each other on our horses. Being able to balance on a horse's back while it gallops at full speed is such an...

    Grew Up Near a Farm

    My grandparents owned a farm.  We rode their horses, fed the chickens, etc. I miss this -- I would really love to move back to the country and away from the city.

    Usually a No-no

    Growing up, I watched cowboys in the rodeos and on the range galloping and running their horses at top speed to catch a cow or run to the next town.  Maybe it was because our horses are gaited and do not have to run to be fast, but I ALWAYS envied and admired people who...

    I have galloped a horse across the desert.

    Headed to the pyramids at Saqqara, from the pyramids at Giza..... Mostly trotted, but remember the sheer speed and exhilaration, (and fear) of galloping... Gulp!

    His Name Was Smokey...

    He was a horse at the "Riding For The Disabled" school when I was a kid. We broke free of the "handler" and just shot off. We were free. I miss you, old pal. *sigh*
