Over fear of horses? Check!

On July 19th I got over my fear of horses by spending 3 hours with them and my friends Brad and Emilie. I rode Tennessee Walkers! Her name was Cali and she was very nice.
At first I pet her and fed her some grain.

I also brushed her and said nice things about her.

Then I sat on her bare back. For a moment when she was tied up and said even nicer thing to her.

Finally we loaded up the saddles and I hoped on with help from Brad.

We rode around for about an hour or so. I even got her to gallop and the trot!

It was a lovely day at the ranch. I am no longer afraid. I love them a lot.

I kissed old Cali right on the nose at the end of the day! It was a wonderful experience and I am so happy to be over my fear!
