|Kessy and Saturday posing on the trail. A beautiful day out in nature together, just us.|
What really finalized it for me was during one Competitive ride I came upon a young woman barely hanging on, and crying. I stopped her horse, asked what was wrong. She told me she had come with 4 friends and they went too fast and left her, and she"can't handle her horse without them."
We had just passed Mid-Point about 2 miles back.She said she wanted to quit but was afraid to go back alone. I led her horse back to mid-point, and ended up quitting my ride. After that we never met again, but I think of that day often, and yes her friends were not friends at all. But had she spent time riding alone with her horse, that day would have had a better outcome for her and her horse. ~ Gitty Up, Dutch.
