The Ride

"There's nothing better for the inside of a man, than the outside of a horse."
Attributed to Ronald Reagan, though I recall reading a nearly identical sentiment expressed by Winston Churchill.

 My horses have been gone for years now, but the lessons they teach last forever. The world just looks different from the saddle and if you haven't known it you have deprived yourself of one of life's great experiences. Not a few circuits in  a dusty ring, but hours in the saddle on narrow paths through the woods, or mountain slopes where every turn in the trail reveals a new vista.

  There are lessons to be learned, and this song expresses one of the best.

 God bless Cris LeDoux  !!!
