  • Ever since I was young i've loved horses. I've been riding ever since I can remember. From short lessons, to competing in horse shows, my love for horses hasn't wavered. The connection one can make with horses has always stricken me as magical.
    I still remember the first time I ever fell off. I was 6 years old, and terrified. I almost refused to get back on. But I did. I can't even imagine what my life would be like If I hadn't pursued ridding. I'm glad I did, and I know I always will.
    Every moment I fly over a jump, or win a class, it's those wonderful moments that trump all the scary memories, or my past doubts. I make the good count.
