Horse Are My Therapy, Freedom And My Life

I was in a bad place as a child and i remember wanting to take horseback riding lesson but my mother said NO. I ended up going into DCF and going to program and i went to a private school and met the farm teacher. Not only did i gain a riding instructor but a friend and mother. I rode as much as i could at the school then i moved in with her and she owns a good size farm with like quite a bit of horses and some other animals. The horses became my therapy when i was sad, mad or just needed to talk i could go see a horse. I had one horse i loved she was crazy and i  never knew if i  was staying on or falling off when  i rode her. We had alot in common which made her and i get along better then anyone else. Riding became like a freedom i could be who i was while riding. i owe the horses to be the best i can be because they were and still are always there for me.
