Yesterday’s post was on the theme of “Love”. For some reason I mistakenly thought that was the theme of the week. Oh well, ‘waiting’ works too.
I always preferred bareback riding to using a saddle. Magi and I had our little routine. I’d gear him up to go, then tie him up to answer mother nature’s call before leaving the barn. Once mounted, I tended to stay mounted for hours. The downside to riding bareback is that I couldn’t get back on once I got off without something to stand on. It’s sad when you can’t get on your own horse without help . . . the price of getting older, I guess. Magi and I spent many a happy hour riding the trails and enjoying the beauty of Nature together.
