I wanted to post a quick thank you post to all the ‘barn’ moms out there who have sat thru hours or training classes, learned how to clean tack, made friends with the horses we love, and deal with the rollar coaster lifestyle that comes with the sport. THANK YOU! My mom was a true city girl, and horrified at the idea I wanted to ride these animals. Now, many years later, she’s the one who yells at me for turning my toe out, or letting my left wrist break at the canter, and calls to check on her “grandchild” O. She is amazing, and I’m so proud to have her!
