I have fond memories
of my buckskin horse
named Riley.
A favorite time to ride
was in the winter,
bareback of course.
His winter coat
was long and wooly
and oh so warm.
It was like riding with
a heated seat.
The best riding was
with snow on the ground.
The snow provided a cushion
to his hooves like shock absorbers.
And a cushion to my body
when I fell off.
There are houses now
where I once rode in the snow.
Gone is the shed and pen
he called home.
Gone is that girl
that rode bareback in the snow.

Wonderful visuals Lori...your ending made me sad just remembering those days of my youth...when life put no demands on us and the sky was the limit.

I was so young and dumb and scared of everything so it seemed. My horse kept me out of trouble for a while. ~L
