When I watch my friend’s girls canter, horseless, around the pasture or in their driveway, I can remember how I used to while away the hours pretending to be riding my imaginary horse as a child.
I don’t recall pretending to be a horse, but I probably did that, too.
However, I haven’t had any inclination in more recent years to dress up as a horse. This is not the case with an Australian woman named Leanne, who has created an alter ego in the form of a pony named Shyanne. The 40 year old finds it relaxing to dress up as a pony (complete with saddle, bridle and fake hooves) and even, on occasion, pulls her a cart “driven” by a friend.
All I can think when I see this picture is that she’s a good candidate for a bitless bridle.
No wonder people think horsepeople are strange!
