A miracle is when reality exceeds your wildest dreams
Well if Grandfather was right, yesterday a miracle happened at the ranch. For the first time in over a year I took the DOR for a ride. It is also the first time I carried someone without being ponied. I was worried at first, I remember being in so much pain from my injury and I don't want to hurt like that again so I try to protect myself. After the DOR got on I realized that I didn't hurt and things got better. She was nice and leaned forward for me, I still am working out how to make my hind end work just right. As soon as she leaned forward my rear worked much better. We went for a short loop around the arena. The DOR had water leaking from her eyes. There were times that she thought this day would never happen. I have been talking to her in her dreams, showing her that we would be dancing together again. I whispered to her the day to try...she listened.
We still have a way to go before we meet in the middle. I need to get stronger and she wants to loose more weight, but for now we both are happy with the miracle that we had yesterday. From a horse that could barely stand to one carrying a rider again is quite a journey for me to have traveled. The DOR says that I have all the time I need to get to 100%, nice to know that she loves me enough to give me the gift of time.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!
