It probably seems silly to be so excited to spend time with one's mother but this is a great opportunity for me. She too was a trainer but due to injury stopped riding. She had 5 mentors when she was learning, 4 of whom are hall of fame inductees in the NRHA and/or AQHA. I've only scratched the surface of her knowledge and I am beyond excited to dig for more!
Keep your fingers crossed for me that she can ride pain free & keep it up!
