What's On My Mind!

Sunday, March 10, 2013

This weekend's BLC21 challenge really brings back happy memories of riding horses with my friends during our 'growing up' years. My first horseback riding experience was with my friend, Lynn, when we were in middle school. I remember how large the horse seemed at the time, but once up on him all was good with the world. I'd never experienced such a feeling of freedom as we cantered through the fields behind Lynn's house ... it was great! Another time, my friend, Margaret, and I borrowed horses and road all over behind our small Oregon town during a warm lazy summer day. The warm juicy peaches we ate from the nun's peach orchard were the best ever. :-) I can truly say that some of my happiest moments in my life have been while riding these magnificent animals.
