Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

6 Jul

Only four weeks behind on this challenge – I’m getting closer.

Here are the Hub and I on a horse:

See how close I am to him?  It wasn’t love, but fear.  He can ride; this was my first time on a horse.  And last.

I won’t be doing it again; I’ve closed that book.

    I got on a horse ONCE. Then it took a step and I yelled to be let off…never again!

    Great picture, I share the sentiment. I went on a horse once I got thrown off, went a second time couldn’t sit for a few days without pain because I had bruises all over my bum. I like to look at them and that’s it.

    Terrifying beasts so they are. I rode a horse on a ranch in Utah I think. Beautiful day, but very scary.

    I haven’t managed to ride on one so far…it scares the day light out of me. Soon….I promise to myself.

    Love your blog…anything that brings a smile, I am a fan.

    I don’t believe for one minute the story about ‘fear’, It was just the excuse to wrap your arms around the handsome hunk. Don’t worry, I won’t tell a soul!! 😉

    I couldn’t be so cruel as to get on a horse today. He would turn me in for animal cruelty after he threw me off and sat on me. Dianne

    Okaaaaay… first time on a horse and you went bare-back… no wonder you were scared.
    I learned to ride bare back simply because I was too little to lift the saddle and used to climb onto the top of a fence post to get on whilst my sister pushed the house parallel to the fence LOL (One naughty beast called Cinders used to take a big step back whilst you were mid jump and let us fall though the gap)

    If you’d had a saddle to hold on to you would have felt a lot safer and your whole experience would have been a LOT better… i’d say that if you get a chance to go with a really experienced rider on a sedate horse and even BETTER if you can get a western saddle that’s built pretty much like the equivalent of a kids car seat on a horse LOL you’ll feel safe as a house!

    It is much easier if you use a saddle and safer if you wear a helmet.

    I’m wondering, “Did you ride the horse, or did you just sit on it for the photo?” 😉

    Oh, skinny jeans, I had those too! We were way ahead of today’s fashion, weren’t we? Let me guess the year… 1982?

    Me too, Tilly – scary beasts

    Pretty good justification for a snuggle, eh?

    Face your fear………..get back on that horse again! lol

    Aww that’s so cute 🙂 Riding is usually fun and exciting… but well everyone has his own tastes x]

    Romantic! 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
