(Portland, Indiana, USA)
I am horsecrazy because I love to ride horses. When I ride I feel so alive and free. I have always rode alone. I feel more open and I can feel what I want to feel by myself. I have had 3 horse--2 barrel racing horses.
I started riding when I was 5 and I started barrel racing when I was 9. I lost a horse when I was 12 we were running in the woods and he colasped with me still on him but, he didn't roll. Like he was making sure he didn't hurt me. I called my mom and told her what had happend we took him to the vet and they had to put him down because he was just suffering.
A couple of months later I found another barrel horse Whisper, he is an amazing horse and he never disappoints me. We are still strong and I hope I don't have to lose him too. But I am 14 now and I am still a strong lover of horses for what they do for people and their love that most people don't think horses can give. They really are caring animals you just got to earn their trust and love.
