I have been a horse lover from the first moment I knew what horses were! I grew up in suburbia, not understanding why my parents couldn’t fit a horse in our backyard. When I got my first job at age 16, before even buying a car, I bought a horse. I was so certain that I would know what to do with my horse (an unbroken range mare) because I had spent my childhood reading horse stories. All I needed to do was show it love, right?
