You grew up wanting to ride...
And after you cantered for the first time, you were hooked.
Then you quickly learned that horses see dead people...
And you could tell that a horse used to be a barrel racer because every turn looked like this...
And, after a little while, you found impressive ways to not fall off.
You definitely mucked a paddock for hours and then spilled it all.
And you learned how to clean a sheath for the very first time...
And then you understood the importance of having strong legs.
And the day after you fall it's all like...
But of course you got back on.
All the while you're practicing on and off your horse...
Then, your horse rolls in poop after you wash him...
And he throws a shoe right before the show and it's like...
And now you're spending all your money on horses...
At the show, you pick up the wrong lead in front of the judge.
And you jump the one-stride like it's an oxer.
And when you leave, your horse has developed a phobia of the trailer...
But now when people ask if you've ever fallen off, you're like...
And if you go a few days without riding, you become delusional...
And your barn family became your real family.
And your horse is your best friend in all the world.
