Merging with Nature ~ Horseback Riding Adventure in Ontario
Crisp air, cool winds, bright hues, blue skies, or soft snow…take a hike out or choose to go horseback riding.
If you are a novice rider, get carried away to the grace of a horse ride and the surroundings yet to explore. If you are an experienced rider, make every horseback riding adventure be an awe of inspiration, spirit-stirring and memorable.
I have never ridden a horse during my youthful years, not even a domestic water buffalo (back home). I have much wished to ride a horse one day, and so it happened here in Niagara, Ontario. My first riding a horse was unforgettable and forever will be a cherished memory.
While trail riding in springtime, there was the cool air of the season's fresh beginning, blending with the fragrance of what was winter’s asleep forest. The sun’s rays peeking through the tall trees, making its narrow ways in between branches and leaves, appeared heavenly above and before us. A family of deer in the woods, too curious and swift, was a remarkable sight. Trotting was an exciting beat and galloping was more exciting and thrilling. The atmosphere at the stables is different, a country-feel where I wanted to be; strong horses at play, and mister donkey surely let a big hee-haw welcoming me. Most of all, I have fallen in love with the horse assigned to me. His name is Earle, and bidding goodbye to this new friend was hard.
