Penchant

via Daily Prompt: Penchant  

I have a penchant for horses and if I could have a whole backyard full of them I would. But that is unreasonable and of course impossible. I want to be the best horse owner I can be and I’ve seen to many people who have a penchant for them horde them and not care for them like they should be cared for, it’s so sad.  I think people should be ashamed of themselves for living beyond their means and own too many horses and then let them sit and be neglected. But I digress, I wanted to share my love of horses and how much joy they bring to my life.

My horses are my therapy, they are what make my life whole.  I have loved horses all my life and my dear parents indulged my passion to the fullest. They found a horse trainer when I was ten years old and he helped my parents buy my first horse for me and the training began.  I was trained in hunter/jumpers and rode with five different horse trainers throughout my youth and was an avid competitor. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed my youth and showing years. I won many ribbons and I have to thank my parents from the bottom of my heart for providing me with this wonderful life. I know they are smiling down from heaven. I miss them so and I love them dearly.

I took a break from horses. College, marraige, children make me the woman I am today. I love my family, I work full-time and somehow I’ve managed to fit into my busy schedule my penchant for horses. My best friend, my husband, my life longer partner is the most understanding, loving human being I’ve ever known as he fills my heart and soul not only with his love for me but with the love of my two horses. Bless his heart, I am so thankful for my horses. I love this photo of Zack, my other horse Chloe is there too in the stall in the background. They bring me so much happiness, my muse, my horses.

  1. Horses are my therapy too. I took 30 years away from horses from the time I was in university until I cam back when my daughter started to ride. That was 18 years ago. Now she has a full time job and a family and she does not ride but I have carried on. It keeps me sane! Nice to read about you and your life with horses.

    1. Thank you so kindly Anne, so happy to meet up with like minded horse loving people! I can’t wait to start blogging about my barn antics, whether it will be trail riding, the kisses my spoiled horses give to me as I kiss them back. Yes, they keep me sane! ❤
