Oliver Love Note
I know I’m biased but he’s seriously dreamy these days. So many people comment to me how ‘lucky’ I am to have Oliver & not a day goes by where I’m not grateful for every moment I get with this horse.
Even when we’re struggling. Even when I can’t ride him for whatever reason. Even when there are vet bills & farrier bills & all the other expenses that come with this choice.
In many ways, this horse saved me when I went through a period of depression & extreme anxiety at the beginning of 2017. And when we moved to a new barn, his new lease on life inspired my own to get fit & strong to handle my suddenly fit & strong horse.
June marks 2 years since he entered my life, and in some ways yes- it is luck. But it’s also been simultaneously the most humbling growth opportunity & dream come true all at once.
I did a lot of work to be ready for him- emotionally, physically & financially. And it’s been the greatest ride ever since
