It has taken me a few months to be able to post this but Sora has found a new home. I truly thought that she would be with me forever and it is so incredibly heart breaking going out to see the horses and not having her there waiting for me but even now I feel like I made the right decision.
I had given her a lot. She was rehabbed first from the abuse that she had suffered and then from the injury at the beginning of the year. She was almost completely sound and the vet felt that she was going to make a full or almost full recovery. The decision to give her back to the woman I bought her from, not the one who had abused her, was a very difficult one and it was made for several reasons.
However, with all that I gave her she gave me so much more. She taught me how to ask instead of always tell, she taught me how to handle a hot blooded horse, and how to lower my energy and really listen to those around me. I am an entirely different person than I was before I met Sora both around horses and in my day to day life and I will always remember and be incredibly thankful to her for that.
And it will always hurt.
This will be the last post in this blog. It will stay up so that I can share with others what an incredible being Sora was to work with. I am continuing on my journey with horses and after the learning detour that Sora led me on I am going back to work on achieving the goals I had set for myself when I first started riding dressage. I am making an entirely new blog separated from this one to journal my progress and I hope you all check in at some point and meet the new girls in my life :)
Thank you Sora for everything you have selflessly given to me an I am so glad you are happy in your new life.
