Well I did get to ride for about an hour and 30 min yesterday. I am still in
recoop mode. We took it at a walk.. but the best thing it was in the dark.
we got lost and had to double back. Ansata had trail lead. She did wonderful
since poor mom couldn't see worth a flip! I was able to keep my head down
and let my helmet feel for the limbs and all. got a bit scratched from some
briars...(ouch) At times I thought that I was literally going to puke from
fear. I was having to completely trust the horse that I fell hard from. What
shred of trust we had in built from November to January 15th was hardly
visable since my accident. My friends were there giving some guidance as to
where the trail was but we it got to dark on us so we double backed to get
back to the trailer. I was letting Ansata find her way home and the darndest
thing.. we had never been on this trail and I tried to turn her where I
thought the trail was and It wasn't it was a dead end. She fought me that
whole time.. I misstrusted her judgement there and ended up being wrong. So
I just gave my faith to the higher being and trusted Ansata. Whom carried me
back to the truck and trailer safely. Yep HELMET and all. we had two green
horses there too. Ansata was the horse with the most time.. 9 years. It was
truly an acomplishment for me and her. I thanked her over and over for
getting me back safely.
And the most best part. All the stars were out twinkling, as if to beckon to
me to trust in my horse and let her be my light. I have a few scratches on
my left leg but no worries my back was killing me and my knee was not
forgiving. But I feel like walking on air today.
Carla (sorry if I am tall right now I am walking on a bed of air!)
