The Horse that Started it all…
Always an “Old Faithful”, Majic became a barn favorite. In her younger years, Majic had an amazing show record. She blessed me with many blue ribbons and year-end titles in the hunter/jumper and eventing arenas. I learned every day from this special friend who easily became a soul mate.
Sadly, I lost Majic one chilly, October morning, at 27 years young. Always a fighter, Majic denied retirement twice before her passing. The decision to let Majic cross “Rainbow Bridge” was an extremely difficult one for me. As I struggled, I turned to her for one last lesson…How do I let go of my best friend? With a nudge and a nuzzle Majic told me she was ready to end her fight on her own terms. She taught me one last – very important thing – during her passing: always listen to your heart, our horses speak to them.
So, we said our goodbyes and Majic’s spirit held me together… as I let hers go. She went quickly, quietly, and painlessly. She was free….
As I held her for a few final moments, I could see an entirely new horse in front of me. Majic’s coat seemed to be made of gold, her previously tired face was relaxed and rested, and her eyes once filled with struggle were bright and peaceful. She had gone to a better place – a place where she will live forever – she lives now in my heart where she will always be protected with love.
I would live to express my deepest gratitude to all of you for all of your support, I am deeply touched by your love for us during this difficult time. I could not have gotten through any of this without you all! Its overwhelmingly heart-warming and has kept me going! I am truly blessed!
Meghan, Majic, and Family.
