So if you had told me that 6 months ago that my family would be getting involved with horse riding and training, I would have told you that you were crazy. Now, I've been horse crazy since I was 6. You know how little girls are. My mom bought me a book about all different types of horses and I read it until it fell apart. Growing up, I took every chance I got to ride horses. I rode at the family ranch that I've mentioned here before, at friends' houses/ranches...you get the idea. I never did get a horse, but I sure as heck asked every Christmas.
This whole horse thing has the entire family involved! Lessons, care, and rides. I don't think you could ask for a better family activity. Fresh country air, animals, and family time. Can't ask for anything better.
BTW: If you need/want a riding instructor in the Houston area, please email me or post in the comments below with contact information and I will be happy to give you the name of ours!
