The parade of horses.

I am usually an upbeat person and until the passing of Primero I can't recall ever being really depressed. We were down to one horse and I was beginning to lose interest in horses and riding.

They jump over things and...

My First Rides

The first time I sat on a horse, well actually it was a pony, occurred around the time I turned five years old. A man knocked on the front door one day and he had a rope in his hand.
