Bonnie’s huge hooves drove into the ground. Lenobia could feel the mare’s powerful heartbeat. The warm night air whipped her hair back and the Horse Mistress leaned even farther forward, encouraging Bonnie to let loose—to give her everything.
The mare responded with a burst of speed that shouldn’t have been possible for a creature who weighed two thousand pounds.
As the wind whistled around them, lifting Lenobia’s long silver hair in time with the Percheron’s mane in that magickal dance that melded horse to rider, Lenobia thought of the ancient Persian saying: The breath of heaven is found between a horse’s ears.
“That’s right! That’s exactly right!” Lenobia yelled, and clung to the speeding mare’s back.
