My parents met because they boarded their horses at the same stable. The owners of that stable would eventually became my godparents. I had horses, took lessons and did some showing as a kid, riding western. I stopped riding when I went to college, but after starting a family of my own, I began to take lessons again, this time riding English because I’d always wanted to do some jumping. Eventually I bought an appendix gelding. I can’t imagine a life that doesn’t include being around horses. For the last four years, we’ve had an off-the-track thoroughbred mare that my daughter shows in hunters and jumpers. I just started learning dressage with her over this last winter and I’m hooked! Now my son has started riding and showing, too. I’ve always had to find ways to make horses fit into my life on a tight budget. I’ve been able to make it work for myself and my kids, and so can you.
