Last weekend my mom called me up on Saturday morning and asked if I wanted to join her in Park City to ride the horses in the arena since the trails were still wet. I hadn’t ridden a horse in a few months because of the winter weather. I headed up there and spent the day in the warm sun and blue skies, laughing with my mom, and riding our horses around in circles for the first ride of spring. My mother was so happy to be back in the saddle. She’s been stuck inside for a few months due to the cold winter weather. Somehow riding her horse sure does bring back that big smile of hers, which then brings out my big smile.
