Team 112 - Flying Fortress
HI! My name is Jala and my main ride is Belle. She is a true Arabian redhead, a chestnut with a flaxen mane and the personality to match. She is fairly new to me, so I plan on putting most of my miles on her. She started her endurance career last year mid summer and has truly surprised me with how much she loves it. She still has a lot to learn as do I, but the only way to gain knowledge, confidence and experience is to ride. I also have two other Arabians, Country, my little grey rescue and Beauty, technically my husbands horse.
My first horse (Country) was purchased 4 years ago on a whim while my husband was deployed and I was wasn't working full time. I spent every day for six months with her. I don't regret any of it. That one little grey horse has taught me so much about life. She has taught me to savor the moment, that patience will get you everything you wanted and to live with what you have, not what you want. Belle is now teaching me to hang on and enjoy the ride while I teach her patience and to savor the moment. I believe my girls came into my life at just the right moment and for a specific reason.
I look forward to 2014 and the time I will get with my girls.
