    Trippy

    Today I was cantering on a quarterhorse named Zella when she tripped. I was actually shocked for some reason to learn that horses can trip. But she tripped fabulously, both of her front legs suddenly going down. I fell forward and hit my stomach on the saddle horn, hard. It...

    My experience in horse back riding starts from

    the first time I could hold on to a small saddle attached to a parent horse's saddle. Then at 7 years old I received a horse of my own, Rasha. He was an Arabian of the perfect state of mind. Not flighty, not jumpy, he was a kid friendly horse. Despite our first hiccups we became...
