|A Head Shot (ohhh, those eyes!)|
As you know, in the Fall of 2006, this handsome boy, Valentino, walked out of the trailer and into my life! And, as a result, the difference in each and every day has changed in a very dramatic way! Even though I had been away from horse ownership for so many years, it felt very natural to actually own and "partner with" one of these great creatures once again. However, more importantly, the fact that we are "a team" in this ongoing learning experience, me, getting back into riding in the English discipline again and him, adjusting to life away from the race track, has made it much more interesting and challenging!
