Horses in Space?! 2 October 2020

In An Alliance of Stars, our main character dreams of riding her horse through the stars in space:

“She wasn’t afraid, but lifted her arms out along the line of her shoulders as Smokey gathered himself for the mightiest of jumps. ‘Hup,’ she encouraged him as his front legs came off the ground and the heave of his powerful hindquarters launched them both into the heavens. Suddenly, they were surrounded by myriad points of light. Flying past stars radiating bright blues and reds and oranges, Isa gathered Smokey’s neck in her arms and whispered, ‘Thank you for bringing me here and keeping me safe.’ And she slept there, on his back, as they sailed through space and time.”

I took this goofy slow motion video to give myself an idea of what it might be like to ride in space…if there were a little oxygen!
