My Life Horse Riding

Galloping Horses by Xu Zechen, translated by Helen Wang

I'm going to be honest with you, Internet, because this feels like a safe place to share my darkest and most shameful secrets: I was a horse girl growing up. Now you might be thinking, "Oh, so you liked horses. I was a horse girl. Horses were my top priority at any given time. I had horse toys and horse jewelry. I had a horse journal, in which I wrote exclusively about horses.

In the beginning, I was of two minds: to write the story as a novel or to write it as a series of travel essays where I was not the focus, but a silent observant scribe. Regardless of the narration technique, the set-up would be the same — a group of ordinary yet adventurous women living a week each year in an extraordinary place on the edge of the Arctic circle, a remote oasis of peace in an otherwise noisy chaotic world. Horses, a beautiful setting, 24 hours of sunlight, fast rides —that was what I wanted to capture. The arc of the story would also be the same whether it was fiction or non-fiction: the early years when we traveled as a group of ten, unfamiliar with the place and each other; the middle years when the group once winnowed down to four and nearly flamed out; the later years that brought with them a renewed commitment to traveling together as long as we possibly could. The ending was amorphous, because we were still going every year. I had been writing fiction for years, so it was natural to first see the book as a novel with a third person, omniscient narrator. To begin writing a new new book of any kind takes a certain amount of delusional hope.

I had just finished reading a string of literary novels, the kind in which you are so busy admiring the writing that you lose track of the plot if there is one , and I was jonesing to lose myself in a story. Horse stories put me in mind of a certain period of my girlhood, when I wandered around the library too old for the magic and adventure stories I used to love but not quite sure what came next.
