My mother used to tell people: "Jennifer hasn't met a horse she doesn't love."
I suppose that's true in a general sense, but in all my years of riding, I've only been truly, deeply, passionately in love with a small handful of horses.Mystyc is not on that list.
Don't get me wrong. There's a lot to love about Mystyc. She's a good girl, a sweet girl and a really pretty girl.
She hasn't been an easy horse for me...
but from our first ride...
to our last...
it's been a mostly good eight months.
As it turns out, eight months is all it's going to be.
At this time last year, Mystyc was for sale. Her owner took her off the market after I started leasing her, but I always knew that she could be for sale again if the right home happened to come around.
Now it has. As of yesterday, Mystyc belongs to a teenage girl who is already truly, deeply, passionately in love with her. I wish them both the best.
