“So get out there and slay your emotions until they feel as good as you.” These thought provoking words are from our 16-year-old son’s essay on nature just one week prior to his passing.
Kayden lived his life to the fullest as he ripped through the snow at Geyser Pass on his snowboard, to speeding through the sand dunes behind the rocks on his dirt bike, to jumping into any body of water whether it be the Colorado River, jumping from the cliffs at Left Hand, in the dark, using a battery powered light, or to the tiniest of pools that only contain two feet of water, okay, maybe not the brightest idea, but you get the point. A cowboy through and through as he rode the hills building a loop at a full gallop chasing a wild cow. He explored all that Moab had to offer with no inhibitions. He loved being out in nature.
It was in that nature, God’s display of his many wonders, where he could leave everything behind. This is where you can hear both the past and the present speaking to you through the rustle of the junipers. Your burdens are lifted by the sound of your horse moving through the desert. Trials are made lighter on the wings of a hawk soaring up above. It is in this nature that you can find renewal.
Now is your time to get out and explore Moab whether it be in a jeep, a mountain bike, or from the back of a horse as the likes of Butch Cassidy and his band of outlaws. Take the time to explore and leave behind the stress of everyday life.
Whether you are a seasoned rider, or have never ridden before, there is something we can offer. Dave Stamey sums it best in his song titled “Come Ride with Me”. At MH Cowboy we offer that ride that can take you into nature to renew your spirits. We can teach you some horsemanship, maybe a little roping too. There is nothing like being on the back of a horse riding through the sage, especially following a rain storm as the smells penetrate your senses and help you to find a peace that can only be found in nature. We invite you to visit us. We are MH Cowboy horseback trailrides. Contact us at 435-259-0482 or email@example.com and visit mhcowboy.com
