At the waterfall, I got off and checked the cinch on Huszar’s saddle to make sure the saddle was tight. I am going to gallop Huszar for miles in the wash! Galloping as fast as possible is Huszar’s favorite thing to do!


I met a woman who jumps her horse and who had a serious accident during a jump. She fell off her horse onto the hard ground. She has a metal plate through her entire pelvis. And she is still riding. I realize how dangerous horses can be but it only makes me be more careful when I ride Zum on the trails.


Four things are needed for me to gentle a young, wild horse like Zum: patience, mindfulness, encouragement and warmth.
