Riding horses is full of amazing memories, but some of the most special moments are those that don't immediately stand out.
When you spend your life riding horses, certain moments will stand out to you. Maybe it's your first major win at a horse show, or the first time you jumped an oxer. But chances are the most special moments to you are the quieter ones where it's just you and your horse.
These moments, like when your horse whinnies after spotting you at the pasture gate, or how it feels to ride him bareback in the fields at the end of a summer day, are the ones that we should really cherish.
This video beautifully captures the special moments between horse and rider. Here are the little details - the touch of a rein, the breeze through a mane - that mean so much to us, especially when they're gone. Sit back, relax, and watch this entrancing video.
We all want to capture these special moments so that we may revisit them in the future. You can start capturing these moments by simply being aware. Spend some quiet time with your horse without distractions and enjoy the little things in life, like the sound of him grazing or the way his shoulder feels under your hand.
But there are other ways to capture important memories, too. Consider hiring a professional photographer to come out and do a photo shoot with you and your horse. A skilled photographer can take photos which will help you to remember your horse for years to come.
You might also want to take videos of you and your horse. Many riders have videos taken of their time in the show ring, but fewer riders think to take video of the quiet moments they spend grooming or hand grazing their horses. Sometimes these are the moments that are the most special, so be sure to appreciate and remember them.
