Are you kidding? Ride a what?

Well now this is a first, that's for sure. As we were walking up to the stables to mount our horses and ride through God's country, the backwoods of Montana, my heart was beating so hard I nearly choked on it. The last time I was on a horse, I was 8 years old and was bucked off. Hornery creature. I have finally learned how to just take the fear with me and do whatever it is I am afraid of. Once I was on and learned how to work with my horse, it was the most fun and greatest thing I ever did! I LOVE horseback riding. This was the first of many, many times to come. The lesson is, fear can certainly control your life if you allow it. I, for one, am choosing not to allow it anymore!! Sweet victory again!
