Back in the saddle
It's been about 15 years minimum since I had an accident with one of my favorite horses at the stables. Before that I was riding quite professionally, joining tournaments and so on. After that accident I decided to stop for a while just being in shock and never went back. Being here in Ibiza now for two years and more connected to nature again, I felt I wanted to reconnect with my passion for horses and horseriding. Especially as I am part of yoga and horseriding retreats in Ibiza!!!
One of my dear yogastudents told me about this ibizenco guy who owns 4 horses close to my home and that she learns how to ride there. I was excited!!!! Yesterday I finally went..... I had so much respect for this enormous but beautiful animals. They were absolutely stunning and so lovingly kept. I took a deep breath, overcame my initial fear and a second later I sat high up in the saddle! What a feeling it was!!!! The smell of the animal and the gentle movement brought back all these happy memories I used to have when I was younger! Still quite insecure and not at all in control of the Giants I did my rounds an felt thoroughly happy! The white lady was so much more easier on me than the slightly wilder brown male horse.....
Happy as a cupcake I left the beautiful animals and already made my date for next week, where we'll probably take them out into the Ibizan countryside. I can't fricking wait!! So happy to have revived one of my first and biggest loves!
