Riding Away

Began my riding classes today morning. Don’t know who was more jittery – the horse or me. Unlike other forms of transportation that are mechanical, in riding you have to contend and risk the temperament of the horse as well. I have heard of many friends being tossed off unceremoniously or having their horses kicked by another one that led to a war of sorts. Nevertheless, it was smooth sailing for me on the first day. It takes a lot of getting used to – dig your heel low, keep your legs close to the horse’s tummy, go up and down to avoid injuring him, keep your back straight, keep the thighs locked, don’t bend forward. As you can imagine, coordinating such a large set of instructions took all my energy. By the end of it, I don’t know who was more tired – me in my attempt to save my buttocks and exercise my legs or the horse trying to ignore my weight and wobbly movements. Well, tomorrow should be a better day :).

About Namita

A melange of colors, just like the rainbow. Sometimes, as bright as the yellow sun, brimming with energy. Then driven by the passion of red to pursue my dreams. Calm like the clear blue skies and playful like streaks of violets. I am a collection of stories, each different and yet the same. I am simple in my complexities and something in my nothingness. For my bread and butter, I am a reflexologist – a profession which is more than just a job, it is my passion. When I am not busy in conversation with the feet, I potter around with my camera lens, indulge in good music and snuggle in with my books. And when my energies begin running low, nothing perks me more than traveling to unknown places, meeting all sorts of people and exchanging tall stories. I am a founding trustee of the Uday Public Charitable Trust that hopes to provide the gift of education to children of martyred soldiers and also other deserving children. It is a cause close to my heart. My gypsy heart cannot sit still and I must always move, explore…The mountains call out ever so often and I am off with my backpack. Trek, trek, trek…I want to push my limits always..rediscover my fears and move forward with my strengths. i love myself and my life, I must be god’s favorite child . With much to do and much to see, i am on the brink of another journey, always.
