|Treasure and I|
|Jumping 2'9" with Apryl in the ring: ever the enthusiastic jumper!|
|Her watching me groom her legs|
|Jumping cross country|
|At a show about 5 or 6 years ago|
|Riding for the first time in two years!|
|I rode bareback and in a halter so she'd be in a relaxed frame of mind|
I'm so grateful for my childhood, and those teen years I was able to still do what I wanted despite some limitations and pain. The barn was my escape, filled with people who understood me. Nobody can ever take your memories away from you! Hold onto those good times, remember them when things are hard, and don't ever give up hope that you can't get a piece of it again. My Kindred Spirit Francine says, she'll always find a way to get me on a horse (even if she has to hold me up in front of her, as she has done before and I know will again<3) There are always ways to get around limitations. Never ever give up! http://www.thenegufoundation.org/ It probably won't be exactly like it was before, but so long as you can let go of that and enjoy what it is now, you can find so many blessings in life you may not have seen before.
