Horseback Riding at Bobby's Ranch
When I was at my 20's, I had a chance to ride a horse outdoor for the very first time and I was riding super fast like a professional. There was no sense of safety rules in China back then, I just got on a random horse while on vacation without any concerns or hesitations because I was always brave. No one around could believe a woman could ride a horse like a pro, some people refused to accept that it was indeed a woman on the back of the horse. In the end, I was very proud of my accomplishment. I only wish that we had the luxury to record the whole thing as we could today for a good memory.
Wanting to experience the excitement again, my friend and I finally went to the Bobby's Ranch in Concord, Mass. after having the initial thoughts months ago. I was hoping for a free and fast ride, but all they offer are either trail ride which is a walk, or canter ride, which is a slow run. I requested the canter ride, my friend could only do trail ride. After a special permission, they allowed my friend to record my ride in a ring. Too bad, the horse normally carries young kids refused to run as I wished. After a while of trying, he finally had a very slow run, which, of course, was better than no run.
Disappointed, we had to get on the trail ride all together due to the time limit. Guided on the trail, we finally had a couple of opportunities to let the horses run a short distance. Unfortunately, when the horse was running, my friend could only hold on to the saddle to prevent himself from falling off, record the fast run was impossible.
After all, no exciting moments were caught on video. But I'm determined to do it again in the future and I am confident I would have the horse run for me eventually.
