those who know me, know i'm afraid of horses. like i-would-like-to-scream-hysterically-and-run-for-my-life scared.
but i have a sweet 11-year old who adore horses. sweet trick of the universe huh?!
and so it happened that my lovely employee @deniseromyn let Sanne take a ride on her horse. i took pictures, from a save distance...
and then i thought about facing fears and how tough my little cookie was. i was able to touch Mel (20 year old and honestly sweet horse). after watching Sanne ride her for 1 hour i felt less fear . i felt i could do this. sanne's eyes confinced me to try. to show my girl i do face my fears. like i always tell her to do so. but now i was able to show her. look at me!! i am on a freaking horse!!
why Denise is laughing so hard?! i told her repeatedly "go slowly!! go very very slowly!!" that sweet Mel was almost standing still, so slowly she was walking.
but hey! that's me. riding that horse!
and because you need a good laugh. this is me 'taking off'. bwahahahahaha.
life is good. face your fears.
