I'm a helpless romantic, both forms of romance:
1)My books are dominated by idealism, a desire for adventure, and a touch of chivalry.
2) My writing may be characterized by a preoccupation with love or the idealizing of love.
What better backdrop could exist for this type of story, than an Amish countryside?
(not bad to have along... just be smart enough to silence the thing!)
They go slow enough that you can look into each other's eyes for a moment and not miss a turn or run a red light.
Bring along a light meal or a refreshing drink. Stop down by the creek and give the horse a much-deserved rest. After you wade in the stream for a while, your horse will be ready to make the return trip.
If it's warm out, leave off those heavy shoes. If it's chilly, snuggle.
You will be behind the horse all the while. Notice the view is always of the backside of a horse. Don't forget, they are living creatures that need to relieve themselves every now and again. Although, they don't use gas... they do produce quite a bit.
Horses don't seem to have a problem with privacy and are not shy about taking care of whatever business is at hand. They don't check with your human conversation to see if their contribution is timely, or not. I have even imagined that my horses use these functions on purpose if they don't like the conversation.
