The smell of straw and fresh horse. The sound the stirrups and straps make as you maneuver in your seat. Ah yes, I am back in the saddle. I started out with a short ten minutes this morning, and while I have an annoying intermittent cough, it is because I loosened up some junk with my exercise. It felt great to move with purpose again. I will work my way back up to 30 minutes.
