“Always saddle your own horse.” This quote is from Connie Reeves, who was voted into the cowgirl Hall of Fame with Sandra Day O’Conner. She was 101 at the time and rode her horse everyday. She was the first female graduate of the University of Texas Law School and has taught over 35,000 young girls to ride horses. I think this wonderful woman meant it to be a life lesson, one of many we learn from horses.
“Many of us come home from work feeling like a human pinata ~ beaten but not quite broken ~ slip on our boots and head for the barn where we bury our heads in our horses and take in their aroma. Sharing time with a horse elevates senses, expands awareness and amplifies this thing called life.”
