I wrote this poem after my horseback riding lesson today. I wish the snow would go away so I could ride outside but for now, the small jumps in the indoor ring will have to do. I feel great and I hope all of you get to experience the thrill of jumping at least once in your lives. Life is Good.

Head up and heels down
The wind in my face
I watch the world blur by
With a smile on my face
I can feel the muscles move beneath me
The very beginings of strain
The heavier, laboring stride
Taking the place of lighter movement
Reluctantly, I sit back
Tightening the reins
Grounded once more
But happy
Because with him,
I can fly.
