When I think about the long list of things I hope to do in my life, including:
1. See the Taj Mahal
2. Open a riding stable on our old family ranch
3. Ride in the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee
4. Ride a camel to Giza
5. Ride an elephant in Thailand
The one I think is the most important and I think of the most often is living long enough and being healthy enough to teach my grandchildren how to ride horses.
Of course, neither my son or step-daughter are even married. Not that it is a pre-requisite these days…
But the thought of watching those grand kids climb up there and grow in their confidence, then chatter away as we ride out into the pastures, just pulls the corners of my mouth out so far I can feel my face stretching.
It’s a wonderful dream.
