Other activities: In high school, I used to ride horses and show
competitively, hunt seat equestrian style. My Texas Aunt gave me my first
horse at 14, she had saved him from starvation. His name was Dusty Daredevil
but we called him “Linus” It cost more to truck him up from Texas than he
was worth, but he as well loved. My next horse was a confirmation
gray named Wavelength. He passed away from cancer one summer
while I was a student at Encore before college. My parents didn’t tell me until
I got home! I am still mad about that. Then my senior year of high school,
I got the most beautiful bay horse ever, and he knew it. I couldn’t help it,
I had just gotten my Strad about the same time, so I named him
Stradivarius. It was pretty funny when they announced
us entering the ring at horse shows 🙂
