Been a lifelong dream to learn to fly!!! As a little girl, I had the common little girl dream of having my own horse, so at the age of 14, my father bought me a black Arabian! I learned to care for her, groom her, ride her, blanket her and tend to her health over the next 24 years. We truly learned to ride as one. However, I knew I couldn’t pursue flying until my girl wasn’t with me any more, as I was committed to the time and money invested in life- long companion.
