Horses are my favourite animal, although I've never had one. I've been riding on and off since I was little, and they were the first animals that truly inspired me. The best time I've spent with horses was at a therapeutic riding stable, where people with disabilities learned how to ride. I was responsible for taking care of the horse most of the time while being in the arena. I have so many happy memories at that place. I made many, many friends; human, equine, feline, and canine. But it was the horses that made me unafraid and more experienced around them, and they taught me so much. I am grateful for my time spent with them, five long, beautiful years with "my" horses.
I haven't ridden for a long time, but one of these days I hope to get back in the saddle!
And one of these days I want to get a horse of my own! My cousin's girlfriend has a BEAUTIFUL grey arab gelding. His name is Joey, what a hunk!
