Twelve hundred pounds of power, strength and speed move below you.
Every stride launching you closer….
Ever so closer as your hands tangle in reins and mane.
They beat the ground, Closer. Ever so closer.
1, 2, 3. Sun hits your as you arch.
Power surging through you as the laws of gravity are defied.
Every muscle launching you farther and higher than even the skies could dream of.
And for that precious moment. That split second.
As you defy nature and risk your life.
As you give your life to the very thing that can so easily kill you.
You are home.
