First Post Track Ride

February 9, 2022

There’s something magical about riding your own horse for the very first time (!) after years of riding lesson horses…

This little lady had her first ride in 9 months post-track today! And I got #backinthesaddle for the first time since my fall 6 weeks ago. As someone who normally overthinks every second of their life, I didn’t hesitate once before climbing up on this 16.2 hh beauty. No, I wasn’t wearing the proper riding attire or tall boots. But, I had complete trust in a being that weighs 10x more than I do. Trust that has taken months to build up.

Here’s to many more hours in the saddle with the most gentle OTTB!

With H.O.P.E.
