Out beyond the gate
I find my breath, deep and full
On a white mare’s back.
Art Prescription: Rode Lacey today! Some ring work…my trot a little better…and then off into the woods and corn-fields. Lean forward going up-hill and lean back going down hill. I try to let her rhythm carry my body. Trust, let go and breathe. Folks this is big.
Wash day, clean white horse
Rolls in the dirt to dry off
Mud, natures sunscreen.
Art Prescription: I rode Lacey today, a new mare at Blue Skies. Hot day for May, so after our ride we got to spray them off. They really liked that!! And just like a clean dog, Lacey trotted into the grassy meadow and proceeded to roll. Pretty cute!! Pen and ink and watercolor 5 x 7.
Through long green grass fields
Into the woods, by cows, geese,
Trail ride perfection!
Art Prescription: Spring experienced on the back of a horse is bliss. Look down and see wildflowers at their feet. Watch their ears and eyes as they take it all in. You are on their back and they carry you with each step, mutual trust!
View from the saddle
Velvet attentive ears, and
Art Prescription: I rode Doc today at Women’s Intuitive Riding at Blue Skies http://www.blueskiesmapleview.us. Looking down at his beautiful profile and soft ears, I couldn’t help but think of what a spectacular view this is!
