God said, "I need...."
- someone who can form a martingale out of a 20 year old bridle and pull a shoe with only a pair of pliers, so God made a rider.
- someone who can square bale 700 while convincing three friends to help them bring it in using only beer, and putting in a 40 hour week before Wednesday morning, so God made a rider.
- someone who can drive a truck with a trailer in any weather, park in too small a space, tack up a horse that wants to go home, warm up in a ring that is too small with too many people, and go in a class (out of order), jump a course only partially memorized on a horse that still wants to go home, so God made a rider.
Those are my favorites.
