    I loved horses, riding them around a great joy to me. It was a passion of mine till I could learn to walk and actually feel how my body moved. The feeling of speed was the best part, I could almost fly as I rode. I miss it sometimes but it was fun to try for a few weeks.

    I spent some time with horses (in the guise of helping someone muck out their stables)
    Being in close proximity to these horses and recognising a connection (without uttering a word) was quite profound.

    I'm not brave enough to ride a horse (unpredictable living creatures) I much prefer a car but spending time with these horses was almost meditative.
