When I was a kid my mom signed me up for a sleep-away horse camp. Where they assigned you your own horse for the week and you learned all about grooming them. Keeping the tack and saddle clean, and how to ride, etc. 21 Jim Kiick 1946 2020, Miami Dolphins 1968 1974, Thank You For The Memories Signature Shirt. My sister was assigned his brother, Rusty. I was absolutely terrified. But these two were literally the most gentle giants. I have ever met and would break up fights between other horses and ponies. I honestly don’t think I even learned how to ride properly, Rudy enjoyed doing his own thing and went wherever he wanted, luckily it was generally in the right direction.

The day before I left I was tying him to a fence when he pushed me against it with his head and used my back as a scratching post before letting me turn around and he basically just rested his giant head on my shoulder and gave me a hug. 21 Jim Kiick 1946 2020 Miami Dolphins 1968 1974, Thank You For The Memories Signature Shirt. He had the best personality ever and completely took away any fears of horses I had. They’re such cool animals. The best horse I ever rode was a Clydesdale cross. He was a retired show jumper that had been at this school for 10 years maybe? But was never an asshole when I wasn’t. He used to rest his muzzle against the back of my neck when I’d walk him for cool down or to the paddock. I miss you, Newton.

Having lived in the country with my family for most of my teen years. I always strangely wondered whether it would be possible to get a DUI on one of our horses. “Well, officer, I’m drunk as shit but Bubba knows where he’s going. We’ll be fine, bye.” I took one of these on vacation with the family once and was doing. 21 Jim Kiick 1946 2020 Miami Dolphins 1968 1974, Thank You For The Memories Signature Shirt. The guide literally pulled up next to me and told me(nicely) to cut it out, and just sit my saddle and let her do her thing. Once I did I had a much better time, it was cool to just sit back and trust the horse to know its job.
