How ironic after finishing yesterdays post about a new fire being lit, that I should read on Bitless Horse: Science vs Tradition about a contest about dreams.
Bitless has a very nice blog about her journey being bitless, and like this blog, whatever else hits her horsey fancy. She also makes beautiful horse hair products. If you send in you own horse hair she will use that. Her contest is for one of her hair products. A horse hair bridle tassel/ key chain, with a charm that says "Dream". Head on over there to check it out!
Anyway back to my dream. It has two parts. One to be at a healthy weight. Second to ride my horse with confidence. I believe that these two go hand in hand.

Notice the emphasis on my, be that one of the two beasts I have now, or selling one or both and getting a more appropriate horse has yet to be seen. I want to ride my horse and have that feeling of comfort in the saddle again. And I will, I am determined. The beautiful thing about this journey so far is that as I have lost weight and work on my confidence to get in the saddle I find myself more confident in other parts of my life.
