Somehow our two year mark snuck up on me. Can you believe it? Two years with this big beautiful amazing steed.
In some ways it feels like I just got him yesterday- I can still so distinctly remember every moment of our trial ride and how it felt to sit on him for the first time.
But in other ways, it feels like he’s always been part of the family.
We’ve come a long long way together. Both of us were jumper-ring-greenies when I got him, and we’ve learned the ropes together as we’ve grown.
Through every success and setback, move-up and misstep, Frankie has been there with me to remind me why I love this sport.
He has pushed me to become a better rider and a better horsewoman. He’s been the reason I’ve sought more education, gotten involved in my sport at different levels, met incredible people. His own work ethic has inspired mine.
He’s been there for some of the most amazing moments of my life.
He’s been a warm and comforting source of love when I’m down.
We’ve learned, sometimes at different speeds, sometimes with one of us outpacing the other- but always working together patiently to catch up. His athleticism is so beyond what I could’ve dreamed or hoped for and he is the reason my dreams keep growing.
We are both so very far from perfect, but I can’t imagine a more perfect horse for me.
Cheers to two years with the best horse a girl could ask for. I can’t wait to see what’s next for us.
