I very much enjoyed your tale. You developed the relationship between you and the horse very well.

Small suggestion: try to avoid "to be" verbs, and go for more active words. Instead of "I would ride", try "I rode".

Lovely story, well written.

Oh what a lovely story. Horses are amazing creatures, and here is one that participated in a miracle. I love it that you described his ears, when listening to God before and after the uncharacteristic behaviour. You managed to notice this despite your frame of mind. Beautifully detailed story.
Wow. This was a great story. I loved how you used the "midnight" theme to not only describe the horse but also the dark times that your MC was going through. I really hope this one places high this week, because it is great. :)
