This is a poem I wrote a couple of years ago and just came across. Maybe some of you feel the same way. Hope you enjoy it.

I Ride

I ride and I enjoy it

The sweat the dirt the smell

I ride to feel like me again

When thing aren’t going well.

I ride with strength and focus

On cloudy days or clear

I ride with smiles and laughter

With friends that I hold dear.

I ride to push the worries

Of the day out of my mind.

I ride to try to re-connect

With life; to not be blind.

I ride to smile and laugh a bit

At the troubles I thought I had.

I ride and I discover

That life ain’t all that bad.

I ride to feel the movement

Of my horse within my soul.

I ride to try and hold his strength

And for a moment reach that goal.

I ride and that speak volumes

About the person I’ve become.

I ride to make me better

So I don’t become bitter and numb.

I ride with no apologies

To those who just don’t get it.

I ride to live, I live to ride

I ride and I don’t regret it.

Trena, what a great poem. So true on many levels. You should have that in a nice frame hung up in your barn.

P.S. I HAVE READ THIS POEM BY TRENA REED AND I PROMISE I WILL NOT SHARE IT WITH OTHERS OR TRY TO MAKE A PROFIT FROM IT WITH OUT AUTHORIZATION FROM THE AUTHOR, TRENA REED!!

That's about what I was thinking too, when I read the poem--but you worded it better than I could have!

Oh Trena thanks for sharing for that. I haven't ridden my biggy for 2 day's and it made me miss it all the more. I'm going to do it tomorrow, I swear. I've just had so much going on. I can't wait. TJ
