Do I have to ride? Nope. Do I like to ride? Yep. But is it that important? I am not sure. I mean yes I love having Remus and taking lessons and would love to have him at home one day...BUT I think the most important thing of riding to me is not the actual … Continue reading Day 22–The Importance of Riding in Your Life
I really don't have "perfect schooling outfits". If it has any purple on it I will buy it but otherwise brands or styles don't bug me too much.
