First ride in Roxy’s saddle with Jac; Coincidence or God-incidence

I really considered NOT sharing this. It is so strange that it seems fake, like a set up or something but it wasn’t. I decided that it is silly to skip telling the truth just because it so strange that people may not believe. You decide.

Yesterday I decided to haul Jac to ride at a neighbors place. I am taking Jac to the All American Quarter Horse Congress next week for a big debut and didn’t want the Congress to be his first trip away. I got there and chatted awhile. The arena owner asked me if I wanted the radio shut off, or the station changed or anything and I said no.

I decided that because of the Congress I was also going to change saddles. I wanted to ride him in something a little 2006 Tulsa saddlemore ‘fitting’. As I saddled him up I thought about how poignant the moment was, Jac wearing the saddle that his mom had won.

Jesse walked in, made no comment as I swung my leg over Jacs back. And then it happened.

Jesse said, “Do you hear that?”

Goosebumps were already racing up my arms. The hair on my neck standing up. ‘Yes.’

“No one’s going to believe this.” He said.

“Take a picture and I will do a blog,” I said.

“Picture? No, video-let them hear it.” Jesse said.

“OK, but video the saddle fender first, and quick.”

Watch the video-make sure your volume is turned up:

    This is a sign, as clear as it can be. And no one can deny it 🙂 “Le hasard n’existe pas” So it’s no coincidence that this music played exactly at that time, it’s a message from your Roxy that she’s there in your heart, with you at all times. You truly deserve to read these messages. Bless you!

    Oh My! I just watched this! Your Heavenly Father and your earthly Father looking down on you with pride. Perhaps Roxie standing close watching her boy.

    You guys… I know that was the song played when she won the free style on Roxy BUT listen very closely at the end right before the video shuts off I SWEAR it sounds like someone saying “You Got This”… I don’t know if I’m hearing things… I have chills all over me…. Somebody tell me I’m not crazy…..

    I was very sad to hear that you had lost your mare, but very happy to hear she is still near you in many other ways.
