The arena lights cast shadows of us that are taller than we are. I can't see the stars because of the clouds, which is disappointing -- finally I'm away from the ridiculous amount of artificial light at school -- but still I feel peace, settling into my bones, because here I am at home. In the shadows there is no distinction between human and horse, girl and mare, and we appear to be one animal -- which is of course the ultimate goal of any serious rider, to attain such oneness with the horse that the two of you nearly become one being.
