Back in the Saddle

I’m embarrassed to say I couldn’t remember the last time I rode Kobi.  Between the Florida heat and humidity, the recent rains, bugs, and poor Kobi’s allergies, it’s been awhile.

The sabbatical ended today.  There was a nice breeze and the temperature was in the mid-80’s.  When I went to catch him, Sugar was grazing between me and Kobi.  He saw me and walked up, pushing her out of the way to put his nose in his halter.  I guess he though it had been too long too!

We didn’t work hard, but it was long enough for him to see things my way again.  I am pleased to say I wasn’t the only one sweating by the end of our ride.

With the weather changing, I won’t go that long without my equine therapy again!

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.
