Loviisa and R.M. Lounatuuli (by Nuivan Laivastotuuli, out of Lempi CH) represented our stable at Kendall County Spring Horse Show! Unfortunately their journey at cross country field ended before the finish line but luckily no one got hurt. Lets hope next time we will manage to bring more horses to the competition grounds :heart:
Fresh air rushed against my face when I literally flied across the field with my grey little mare. Her soon-to-be-white mane waved in front of my eyes and I felt that my veins were full of excitement and adrenaline. This was my thing, my passion. This is what I call being alive. Being one with my four-legged fluffball. Leenis was so full of go. “Ptruu, girl, take it easy.” Leenis jumped the fence without any hesitation, ears full forward.
“How that happened?”
“Is she ok?”
I remember that the jump went great. I the landing went great. But then by all the sudden, I just lost my balance, saw so much yellow grass running in front of my eyes, had that moment in which I realized I was going to fall off and here I was. Sitting on the yellow grass. I felt some ache in my body but the biggest bruise I had on my ego. How was this possible? Everything was so perfect, Leenis felt so good, and nothing even happened. I just lost my balance and ended up here to have a closer look to that grass. It's so cruel how fast things change in this sport. Just a moment ago I was one with my horse, enjoying my life up in the saddle, having the time of my life. And now it was over. I felt sad and angry at the same time even though I knew that this could happen to anyone. Anyone but me.
The unbearable lightness of being could be a great situation but this time it wasn't. I was having so much fun, but all the sudden I felt something was missing. And there were reins in my face, what the hell. I shaked my head and luckily managed to get it off my face. I looked back and oh my, my human was there. What the hell part two. What are you doing there? I thought we had a deal, right? To have fun? There are many fences ahead, didn't you notice? Humans...
