You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

My First Horseback Ride


Wednesday, Aug 15, 2007 from Bellbrook, Ohio

About time! At the beginning of this trip I wrote up a list of things I hoped to do in the coming year. A lot of them I knew were ridiculous things that probably wouldn’t happen (such as going on a date with a super model), but I had to at least entertain the idea. Well one thing on the list that I had never done was ride a horse. It’s something everyone needs to do.

Cathy and Morgan treated me to my first horse riding experience. It was something I truly needed to do and I’m pumped that I was able to squeeze it in before the end of the trip. My horse’s name was Sugar. I was told not to kick her because I would most likely get bucked off. All I thought was “why would I want to kick any living thing.” I was a little intimidated, just a little. It was a new thing, you sit pretty high up, and when I think horses I think muscle. They are strong!

We went for an hour ride. There were three groups of three, plus our guide. We did do a little bit of trotting, which was a lot of fun. I was given a warning that I would be very sore afterwards and the next day. Fortunately, I’m still pretty young and limber. No aches and pains for me and hopefully I’ll do it again sooner than later.

Thank you Cathy! That’s something I have needed to try for a long time.

If you met my roommate from freshmen year you'd know why someone would want to kick a living thing.
