Grasping your hair in my hand, clutching you to me.
I find passion in the softness of whiskers. Warmth in your hold.
You wake me up.
Breathless, we ride.
And yet again, I fall.
After traveling and horseback riding the many regions of Texas, Shannon King decided to make the Big Bend area her home. Now an empty nester, Shannon continues to ride and travel, focusing on preserving the local natural beauty, including the Chihuahuan Desert and Big Bend’s wild burros. Shannon’s hope is to inspire other women to have the confidence to pursue their dreams and live their best life! You can read more of Shannon’s experiences on her public Facebook blog Confessions of a Saddle Tramp.
