Since 1984, my family has owned horses. My mother loved to ride and passed that love along to her children. I learned to ride without a saddle, then both English and Western. All throughout my youth, I rode horses in competitions.
In 2010, I bought an Amish-trained horse and a buggy. I wanted to share my love of horses with my young daughters and husband. Exposing others to horses is very rewarding to me.
Not everyone has the desire or opportunity to learn to ride horseback, however, I find that providing carriage rides is a fun, approachable way for others to experience horses.
