Project Horse


In addition to all the writing and reading I do, I also spend a whole lot of time at the barn. This sweet-faced lady has recently won a place in my heart. She's a 14 year old Hanoverian mare, and she's had 12 (12!!!!) babies. My trainer and I are working on getting her in shape and used to having people on her back.

Riding is my first love. It's really good for my anxious brain to have so many things to focus on OTHER than my own brain and anxiety. While I'm on a horse I'm thinking about my hands and my seat and rhythm and what each part of my leg is doing. It's remarkably soothing. 

Hopefully, we'll get Raina in good shape soon, and I'll post some video.
