When it’s all worth the struggle

Alright, so my last post was maybe a bit dramatic and contained some blood, but as always in life, after rain comes sunshine.😊

In December 2015, when we had finished the Sarcoid treatment and I was certain again, that Barley was fit for fight, I couldn’t wait to get back on his back again.

I had decided to test some bareback riding in the indoor arena to be able to feel if he is tense or if he relaxes, then a friend gave me a dare

I’m on the way to the barn, meet me half way and ride him bareback on the green

Ok, to be truthful, I didn’t think it was a good idea. Most others wouldn’t dare to ride their horses after only  one week of rest….with a saddle…in the indoor arena, but ok. I thought that he would be so fresh that he would buck me off. Afterwards I could have slapped myself for thinking this way. 

I should know better!!!

First: I should have known Barley better as to compare him with other horses and should’ve trusted him more!

Second:  Just because others say you can’t do it, it doesn’t mean you can’t do it.

Third: I should have known Barley better as to compare him with other horses and should’ve trusted him more.

Fourth: He is the best! ❤

So we walked down to the green. I wanted to be sure that he is cool…and he was 😍!

Voilà! Barley and I after an almost 3 months break. First ride ❣
