She settles into the saddle
Loving his strength beneath her
Her friend gives a shudder of anticipation
She leans down to pat him, she feels it too
They move towards the distant hills
She urges him to gather speed
Muscles ripple beneath her as he gathers himself for the run
Her heart quickens in excitement
She bends low over the saddle
They move as one
And lost in their freedom
I have only experienced it once, but I have never forgotten the feeling of freedom I experienced while flying over a field on horseback. I hope to find that same experience again someday soon!
