by Heartbeat For Horses
I sit atop Twister's pasture fence watching her graze peacefully in the warm spring air. The rays of sun glisten across her gray back.
"Twister, ready to go for a ride?" I say as I hop off the fence and walk over to her, halter draped over my shoulder and a treat in hand.
She lifts her head and lets out a soft whinny. I give her a pat and offer her a carrot. I put the halter on her and lead her towards the barn. I clip her onto the cross ties and start to groom her.
Once I had finished grooming her, I bridled her and led her outside. I decided to just ride bareback today. I lead her over to the fence and climb on her bareback.
After giving her a pat, I ask her for a walk. I walk along the fence line for a few minutes and then I have her trot. We trot across the open pasture in the now setting sun and then I ask for a canter. She jumps into the canter tossing her head in excitement. We ride around for about 30 more minutes and then I walk her back to the barn.
I hop off, unbridle her and groom her for a little while. I love coming out here more than anything.
After I turn her out, I feed her an apple and just watch her run around for awhile.
I'm Chloe Hansen and I love horses. I ride a mare named Twister who is my mom's friends horse. I wish she was mine but I still love her more than anything.
