For a time, I taught riding lessons at a barn that was very much oriented towards beginners. While I was there, I made a lot of friends. Most of the riders who were there when I was have moved on to other barns or, in the case of many of the teenagers, have gone on to college. I still see a few of them at events from time to time but mostly keep up with their lives via Facebook. I’ve had some excellent smiles this past week as many of them have come home for Thanksgiving. Seeing smiling faces with horses they’ve clearly missed during the school year has made me nearly as happy as they are.
