Does everyone have that list?
"Things I'd like to do before.."
There are a lot of things that I'd like to do and today I got to cross one of those things off my list.
I went horseback riding.
I've always wanted to try it. I mean, I love animals, so why not??
This is Military Spouse Appreciation Week and the good people of our base have a whole week of awesome activities lined up for the spouses to take advantage of.
Today was Horseback riding and I was excited. At least until I got there. I took one look at those horses and I sat in the car, seconds away from restarting the engine and hightailing it out of there, y'all! I was scared. Scare of falling off. Scare of look dumb. Not sure what I was scare of, but I was all nerves. But I got out!
And I got on Ruby. She was beautiful.
And I'm so sure that she knew I was nervous because she was teasing me in the very beginning before the tour buy moving around a lot. She was fidgety. But on the trail, she was so calm and so easy going. It almost seemed like she kept glancing back at me to make sure I was doing good.
But after a few minutes, riding that horse was a breeze. Felt like I'd been doing it for a long time. I could have stayed on her for hours!
So there. I did something pretty awesome. I tried something new. And this isn't going to be my last time doing it!
