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!
