My wife was born in the heartlands, but she has always had such a strong connection to the ocean that people just assume that she grew up on the coast. For me, that affinity is horses. I don’t know why... I have a friend who says it's because I must have been a cowboy in a past life. If that's so, I definitely didn't bring any of my cowboy skills with me into this life! Yes, I can ride, but I'm definitely not a "cowboy" rider, if you will. No problem, because here in Texas, there are plenty of opportunities for me to do the next best thing: watch people who are!
