Early Monday morning and a free day off work. I hooked up the trailer, loaded up my pony and drove the short distance up the road to our local park with equestrian trails. Headed out early to beat the Summer heat, just me, my reliable horse and Mother Nature. It was perfect! As we were cantering down a stretch of trail, the two of us in harmony, both relaxed and both enjoying the fresh air, I realized, for me, this was…freedom.
