I did get new hair today, and yes, the purple is back. Feels like me again. The truly exciting news tho is I started riding Dim tonight!
He's so lovely. Such a sweet horse. He's fast too. Only did me some walk/trotting tonight, after ground work, but that was well worth it, and we got to know each other better. He's like riding wind. He's so smooth. Every move I make, he responds to. Slightest leg pressure, smallest twitch of the rein, he's right there with me.
I'm going to ride him every other day for a while. We'll learn together.
I didn't get any pictures today, not of the hair, or this momentous ride. It was a busy day, fitting in works with hair and ride, and camera didn't make the cut. We'll do more soon.
Home now, after a rather harrowing Fog Drive from the stable. Back country road, no lights and yes, the fog WAS most definitely as thick as pea soup.
I wish I had words to tell you how it feels to be riding my very own horse, and loving it so. It's like music tho. You can't write about how music feels when you play it. Or how flowers smell. Or rain feels. (Ok, maybe that one, feels wet. Been out in it enough today, know that one)
Or I can't at the moment, I'll have to work on it. Then write it.
I've wanted my own horse since I was five. I've known I should ride since then. It's a lot like coming home.
Speaking of music, gigs at Charlie's this weekend. Pre-St-Pats and trust me when I tell you Paul and I are ready, and anyone who comes is going to be ready. If you are in town, you might want to celebrate early.
There will be rock.
Love, Rock and Riding,
