It’s show season again, which means weekends are filled with dust, neighs, and tons of fun. Emma my daughter, competes in a western event called reining, truly a beautiful sport to watch. I’m in love horses. I love their mystical energy, their grace, and their deep souls. Emma has been riding for 10 years now, and I still get chills every time I watch her fly around the arena.
A few years ago I had a cute horse named Ginger. Emma and I would trail ride near a lake, and pretend we were adventurers traveling out west. We would come across cows, goats, and wooden bridges. I was a bit jumpy and Emma would always take the lead. I no longer ride, however I feel deep pride and endless joy watching Emma make magic happen every time she hops on Holly. Here are a few shots taken at her last show:
