I am not much of a horse person. Its not the smell or the dirt or the sweat. It all boils down to one word-FEAR. Horses scare me. They are ginormous. They are intelligent, too and can have a mind of their own. These girls are brave. They asked their moms to come take pictures of them together-two friends and their horses. As I watched them, I was struck with awe. These girls are really brave. They handled those giant beasts as if it was nothing. And when a horse is spooked, they take it in stride. They do what needs to be done.When the adrenaline rush wears off they laugh with tears in their eyes and call their horses silly names. They get back on and keep going. These girls are really, really brave.
As I stood there snapping away, I just whispered a quiet prayer, that when life was hard they would remember how tough they really are. I prayed they would always dream big and love with such open hearts. They inspire me. I am privileged.
