Grace... What day in June is your bday? Mine is the 10th! :)
Corgi.. a good friend of mine (who is about 20yrs my senior) went to the White Horse ranch in AZ approx 25 yrs ago, and she still raves about it!
I rode for about 5 minutes when I was 7 yrs old, until my mom decided she was Not going to shell out That kind of money!
Fast forward to age 16. As soon as I got my license I would borrow my mom's car every saturday and go to the pay by the hour riding ranch. After a few months I ran out of friends who would go with me, so I ended up just going by myself. After the first year I was allowed to ride without a guide, the next year I Was the guide! Lol. Those were probably some of the happiest times of my life, I was 17-18 and could come ride anytime I wanted for free, and had about 40 horses to choose from!
Got my first horse when I was 21, and still have him today! He is the handsome old boy in my avatar, Spike, 22 yr old QH. Love of my life!
About a year and a half ago I got my 2nd horse, a huge (to me) 16h paint stock gelding named Gunner, 6 yrs old now. Does he ever keep me on my toes!
Just today we were going for a nice canter, when he suddenly jumped four feet to the right because of a patch of grass that was 2 shades darker than the surrounding grass. I almost fell off his left side, it was very close! Luckily, just then he jumped back to the left two feet because of a stick laying there menacingly. That righted me again. True story!
