I am truly blessed to have a generous and supportive husband who not only rekindled my love of all things equine in 2004, but who makes sure that Ike, Cigar and I have everything we need for our centerline adventures. Both boys are getting new halters and their bellies will be full of Uncle Jimmy’s Squeezy Buns. Ike will be sporting a new saddle pad and girth at our dressage shows next year – our current supply of show pads will never be pure white again and shall be relegated to the daily saddle pad pile. Ike also finally has a Rambo fleece cooler to ward off a chill after our lessons this winter.
My life is also blessed with amazing family members and friends who also support my horse obsession. I’m pretty sure some are wondering why I never outgrew the “horse-crazy-girl-phase.” I tell them it is my husband’s fault. His gift of riding lessons reminded me of how special our equine partners can be to keep us young at heart, remind us to live in the moment, and find joy in the simplest pleasures.
