If you're anything like me, you may feel we were cheated of the long hot summers that we're used to.  Maybe it's just my perception, but it feels like we had a shortened summer and I'm sad to see it go.

As the years pass...I try to hang on to the things I do in life that I LOVE!

When temperatures are hot and everyone is complaining about it, I head to the river with my horse and play all day like I'm ten years old again.

It may seem silly to some but it makes me happy! My horse is "Galeron". He is an 11 year old Friesien. I've had him since he was 4 mos old and have done all his training myself.

He's my best friend...and I think you will see why. I hope you enjoy the videos. They're short and not the best quality but you'll get the idea...

I don't like the thought of getting old and NOT being able to do the things I love so I guess that is part of it. And, I think everyone needs something they can do that seems to wash away all the things that make you sad or hurt your feelings and just plainly make you happy! For me, it's singing and playing music and riding and playing with my horse.

What does it for you? I'd love to hear from you, so please post a reply and let me know what you will miss most from summer!
