Dude Where’s my Horse

My step-son, Seth, is approaching his 12th Birthday on the 30th of this month. Saturday we decided to take him out to Wickenburg to stay at Rancho de los Caballeros, a “Dude Ranch,” to celebrate. It was a pretty good time, but this morning I am feeling my 90 minute horse ride. I am a Black Belt, I feel confident in my mount and back control, but when it comes to a 1,000lb horse it was a little sketchy. I felt like a white belt trying to hold mount when we stepped it up from a walk to a gallop. I grew up in the small farmer town of New Castle Colorado, my friends owned horses and cattle, I went to high school in Rifle, CO. I might not have made my friends from back home to proud with my horse riding skills but hey it was fun… Happy Birthday Seth, I hope this is the best year of your life so far.
