On the morning of
the 2nd I woke up to find a card on my bed with the inscription “Mogwai
the Kid” on it. Now Mogwai is Gavin’s nickname for me (based on the
Gremlins film, it’s easy to use your imagination) but the “the kid” part
had me confused. When I opened it, there was a card with a smiling
horse on it. I could not believe it! Gavin had arranged to take me
horse riding at the Tri-Circle D Ranch at Fort Wilderness!
make our breakfast reservation but I could care less (we did cancel)! I was going horse
riding! We figured we could eat afterwards.
step up and mount our horses! This was made much easier than I
imagined as you simply step onto a platform and throw your leg carefully
over the horse and place feet in stirrups.
as long as I can remember. Losing all of the weight that I did for thewedding made
this possible, it was like a reward for me! Gav was so thoughtful. I
had no idea he had arranged this for me!
handle them. Gav’s was called Apache. Domino was naughty a few times
and tried to overtake Gavin’s horse (you must stay in line) and when he
was pulled back into line, at the end of the trail he pushed Apache out
of the way and jumped the queue! We were laughing so much, he was such a mischievous horse!
