since I was a child of having a horse of my own. My parents response to this request was a predictable no. My grandfather was a horse person and since they had a farm, he offered to get me a horse. Again, my parents said absolutely no chance.
April 1, 2004 I achieved this dream and became the owner of my first horse, Hatmandu. He is boarded just 20 minutes away and is completely green. Fortunately there is a trainer in the barn who will do the first 90 days.
