Why I do it…

I wanted to follow-up on my blog last week (see Taking My Life In My Own Hands). 

Yesterday’s ride on Kobi was perfection! I went out expecting a tough ride – between tutoring late, spending all day Friday antique shopping in Mt. Dora, I haven’t spent any time with my boy since Valentine’s Day.  Typically when Kobi feels ignored, my first ride out is a punishment…literally.  He will do anything in his power, short of dumping me, to show me how unhappy he is.

Not this time.  He willing did everything I asked of him.  Our walk/canter transitions were something out of a movie.  He was light in my hands and solid underneath me – the perfect partner.

Rides like yesterday is why I do it – experiencing perfection!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
