Wild Ride

I have been dreaming about horses lately.Not a new theme in my dreams but one that has resurfaced from my childhood.I love horses and always have. Their strength, grace and wild spirit has a magical effect on me. Being in the west I guess has stirred up those cowgirl feelings in me so every night before I go to sleep I look at photos of horses and wish that maybe one day I could possibly.......maybe.......get my own horse! Oh boy, that would really complete my bucket list. Getting a new bike is one thing. Let me tell you, don't fool yourself, you may remember how to ride it but it isn't as easy as it use to be! It's been a rude awakening finding out that I'm not the young, limber girl I use to be. I have spent this evening on the couch with an ice pack on my lower back and Ben Gay rubbed all over so much so that my eyes are watering. So the thought of getting back on a horse after I don't know how many years is daunting to say the least. But I won't let that stop me. I want to feel that strength and power that only a horse can give. But first, I'll practice on my bike, you know the mount and dismount part! So when I can do it without losing my balance, I'll consider going on a trail with maybe a horse my age! In the meantime I'll keep dreaming.

This would be me.
