View Full Version : The Feeling of Flying

If you have ever jumped on a horse you will knw what i mean. It feels like you have wings and you are soaring up,up,up over the sky. So high until you reach the clouds it seems to go in slow motion. Your eyes blur from wishing,wishing that you will land safely. When you touch the ground you land gracefully. If you have never ridden a horse you could just imagine how it must feel. To have that feeling is like to have the world...

Wow, I never knew I could write like that. I'm usually not that good. I guess when it comes from your heart it is powerful....-DogMania

yeah the first time i jumped was actually a mistake! I was on a jumper and my instructor said go over a pole near G i though she said E and it was a cross at E! I flew over that jump...

The first time I jumped I was scared, so it wasn't the most pleasent thing. I rode a black horse named Midnight once, he wass such a great jumper. We jumped really high, and I was actually suprised I could do it, it was really fun and does feel like that :D:D

I used to show hunters and jumpers. It is definitely one of the funnest things you can do on a horse (although swimming with horses is a close second! :) ) It can be hard work when it's hot out - cause you always have to wear a helmet. One of my favorite things too!

Horseluvr- same here, except we couldn't wear our bathing suits. :rolleyes: :( It look me a week to dry out my shoes. Jack loved it, he stommped on the water and nibbled at some lillypads. (which was naughty of me to let him do that, here in WI it's illegal to pick or damage lillypads- oops! :eek: ). He even started to roll in the water, but I stopped him in time. What camp do you go to??
