What it's all about? A reminder

This is a picture of Christa, the young woman that backed Riley. It was taken years ago, and she's riding an OTTB that she trained herself. When I was putting together the farm web site I am working on (shared with you a week or so ago), I ran across the photo. Never mind that I happen to know her, and it's a great photo (taken by Mandy Danish)--it struck a chord with me for another reason. It's a message.

Can you guess the message? (scroll down for the answer)
Remember, it's supposed to be FUN!!!


  1. Ya know what! I didn't have to scroll down to see the answer. It's written all over that photo!

    Crista's expression says it all. What a great picture of a talented horsewoman.

  2. I'm so jealous - I would love to be on such a beautiful horse on such an incredible day. Wow - you live a very blessed life. I'm truly jealous...want to trade? I have three so-called "human" beasts I live with. lol

    Awesome picture! xx

  3. Truer words were never spoken (and a rarer feeling was never felt). Short post? Probably. Excellent point? Definitely! Well said :o)

  4. I have a couple of pictures from eldest's lesson yesterday and some of them show that same joy, even as she's concentrating intently. There's nothing like the feeling of being in the saddle, I remember!
