"The last ride"
So, about a year ago I got to ride this beautiful gelding called Lorenzo. I remember the first time I met him, I saw the kindness in his eyes. His owners barely visited him (because they wanted more, and Lorenzo was “not good enough”, even though he was such a great showjumper) and he was so excited to go outside. He was hard to ride. Seriously. After half of an hour, I fell from his back.
Now, a year later, I’ve ridden him and took care of him six days a week. He has became a big part of my life. He taught me so much more than any horse has ever taught me in 10 years of my riding career. A week ago his owners told, that he was sold to a different country. It was a huge shock. Yesterday I got to ride him for the last time. We went to a place that he always loved to gallop in. And where I used to think I’m going to die since I couldn’t always stop him. The weather was so nice and that evening, for the first time of the year, I heard the birds sing.
Goodbye, Lorenzo.
