"I feel like Michael Jordan"

As one of the boys sat atop a big beautiful horse, he looked down at me, smiled, and said, "I feel like Michael Jordan up here." Later in the ride I asked him how it felt to be riding...he smiled big and said, "like I never want to get off."

As we visited, the teenage girls were laughing and smiling, and at one point, I turned around o see all of them doing cartwheels and round-offs. I was amazed at how child-like they were. The horses watched their human friends while pear slobber dripped from their happy mouths. I think the horses were even smiling...
