I recently found these old photos of me when I had just turned 4 years old.
It explains how deep my love of horses is. I’ve been riding since I was 3 years old. Here I am sporting the new cowgirl outfit I had gotten for my 4th birthday, right down to my new red riding boots. I still have the hat. Wish I still had the boots!
The horse I am on is Big Red. The man beside me in one of the photos is Mr. Simpson, who owned the farm. My mom tells the story of how I was sitting on Red when I was 3 years old, and he took off running. My mom panicked, but apparently I had a blast and stayed on his back as I bounced along laughing!
