Joyful things about horseback life

The smell of “horse” when walking into the barn

Getting the greeting from the horse that made you earn such respect.

The feel of dust and dirt on your skin after a hard lesson.

Feeling the calves loosen up during a ride.

Finally figuring out how to communicate in a way the horse likes and prefers.

Learning a new skill with lots of trial and error.

Watching someone ride and starting to see what they do good and you want to do better at.

Walking the horse back after lesson to his “home”.

Dropping the stirrups after a ride and feeling the legs stretch.
