S: No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle
FC: Every Mile a Memory
1: A moment lasts a short while, but a memory lasts a lifetime. Some of my best memories exist because of my horses and the people that I have met along that road. It started with just one ride a week, but the wait between lessons seemed to get longer and longer. Before I knew it I had a horse of my own and my life had forever changed. Horseback riding became something more than just my hobby, it became my life. It is great that I can have something so amazing in my life and be able to share it with you also, so this book is for you. ~Love Always~

8: To my horse It was love at first ride, And there is no better time, Than there is in the saddle. Up the stream, you’re my paddle, And you know all the while You’re the reason I smile.

12: From time to time, People tell me 'lighten up, it's just a horse.' From time to time People tell me, ' a lot of money spent' From time to time People tell me, 'it's just a horse.' If you really think it's 'Just a horse, ' Like 'just a promise, ' 'Just a friend, ' Than you can't see The beauty of it all. You just can't see. | 'Just a Horse' by Jess Schwarcz
13: The distance traveled, The time spent, And the costs involved for 'Just a horse.' The reason to rise, Early in the morning, Taking those long walks, Even when it's pouring. It's my proudest moments, My only company, The saddest moments, And the gentle touch, That gave me a reason to go on. It's the hopes and dreams, And the coming of the future. The fond memories of the past, And the unforgettable joy of the coming day. So... | If you really think it's, 'Just a horse, ' Like 'just a promise, ' 'Just a friend, ' Than you can't see, The beauty of it all. You just can't see.

18: Riding is something that I have wanted, but also something that I never knew I needed. Sometimes it is hard to understand, and sometimes it isn’t simply black and white, but the connection- the friendship- that we can have with a horse is incomparable to even the best of things. Just the presence of the horse is soothing, is refreshing- it frees your mind. We always know that we can rely on the fact that, even for just one moment, we are free from the world, free from all binds. We can just live our lives, right here, right now.
