I can't tell you the exhilarating feeling I get when riding, let alone the views I stumble upon in the beautiful mountains and valleys here in Oregon. I went riding with three of my girlfriends this past weekend and for the first time we let the horses go! Let them run as fast as they could and oh my gosh, I thought I was in Heaven! I rose from the saddle, leaned forward and we took off, the wind blowing through us, the sound of Romeo's labored yet excited breathing as he raced as fast as he could past the other gals. LOL! I almost couldn't stop him though. Nonetheless, it was my first and will not be my last to ride like we were one with the wind. These are the views we usually come upon. Breathtaking, isn't it? :) It's times like this I feel closest to Mother Nature.
Hope you're all having a wonderful week!
