My poor husband, little did he know that he would have a daughter that would fall in love with horses thus giving his wife an excuse to fulfill one of her childhood dreams. I did manage to hold off for while, two whole years in fact. Then about a year and a half ago, after getting to know, trust, and really like Piper’s instructor Stacey, I let her put me on a horse named Fred. Despite being incredibly nervous, feeling more uncoordinated than I had felt since I was a teenager, and limping around for the next two days, I loved every single minute of it. I’ve been taking regular lessons ever since.
