a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

My Trainer, Sam

Sam is my idol!  She is going to college, works part time in real estate, helps her family run a farm, trains horses, raises her own goats,  has started her herd of cattle, trains children to ride, runs heavy farm equipment, and may walk on water...I haven't seen it but I would not disbelieve.
Now this is how you ride a horse.
In this shot, she has just walked Magic Man through barbed wire on the ground. The chainsaw and the tractor sounds did not bother him a bit.
Shall I ever be able to do this?
Or this?  Notice no bit.
Playing football on a horse
I don't know which impresses me more, Sam catching the ball or Magic standing still for it.
I salute you, Sam!  I want to be just like you when I grow up.
