Alter Ego

I smile as my hand reaches the cold brass knobs of my wardrobe. I open the doors swiftly with a dramatic flair, excited for what is to come. Taking off my dress I put on my riding pants and head for the stables. I grab gear and head straight for my horse giving her a pat. Clambering on my legs barely make it, my body is shaking with adrenaline.  We trot out and the treeline comes into view. Giving my horse a tug we pause. The sun hasn't come up and  yet the dark forest beckons me in. I close my eyes and listen to wind blowing the trees. I give her a kick and as she starts speeding up I open my eyes, the closeness of the trees giving my heart a thrill.
