Have a Galloping Great Day!

I enrolled my daughter in horse riding lessons. Horses are her passion. She’s ten. How could I say no?

She gallops along the sidewalk (with no horse). Posters of Appaloosas and Pintos adorn her walls. My daughter wants to be a vet. So, really, this is like career training!

Plus, there’s this: the horse instructor answers her phone with, “Have a galloping great day!” How can you resist such good-natured enthusiasm?!

From what I’ve seen, horse girls are wholesome, kind, sweet, and grounded. Exactly the qualities I like to see in a ten-year-old girl. Or 13.¬†Better sign her up through her teenager years.

Your daughter has wonderful taste!! Horses are amazing. MUCH better than boy bands, which seem to be the current passion of MY daughters.

Ha! I hope this passion stays around. Yeah, like through high school!
