Sophie and I have adapted to fit each other. We’ve developed an easy language. She will always be my favorite horse to ride.
that sometimes you just have to swallow your misgivings and go for it.
Most of all, Sophie showed me how to be in a relationship. From her, I learned the reality of commitment---along with the universal truth that no matter how much you love someone, there will be times when you just want to murder them. But I also discovered something that gives me untold hope for the future. For all my reading of dreary statistics, and all my uncertainty, I have a strong suspicion that love can last.
Because even after all this time, when I see Sophie out in the field from a distance, and she looks at me, she still takes my breath away. Every time.
