Horses

Being that we are from the suburbs, none of us have had much exposure to horses. Sure, there's been the occasional birthday party or walk around the loop at Brown County State Park, but nothing like a few hours a day riding. These horses are taking us places that we couldn't get to by foot and that are rarely seen. We've each had our exciting moments which we've now lived to tell, but overall it's been incredible.

Tim, the ranch owner, has been our teacher and guide. He has the quiet strength that gives him command over these animals. He really knows them each not only by name, but by personality. We are all learning a lot about trusting the horse and taking charge without being afraid. I think that I'm really going to miss riding when we get home.

That looks like so much fun! When I went on a mission trip to Montana in high school we rode horses and it was beautiful!
