Walk, Trot, Canter

In the heat, the rain, the snow, the dust – she has always wanted to ride. But just ride. Back then she said, “We won’t jump today will we? I don’t want to jump.” And, “I’m NOT going to canter. My stomach hurts, I don’t think I can canter.”


And now it’s “when, how soon, one more time?”


“Can I go first? Can I go now?”


“Can I go again?”


“Did you see? Wasn’t that cool?”


“I’ll be back soon. And we’ll do it again.”

Now she’s all smiles and joy and confidence. And I am so blessed to get to be a witness to it all.
