Off to a Horse Show!

We have been pulling together several stories to post in our blog and on social media that share even more about who we are – as a couple, and as individuals. We hope to expand on our profile book, and tell more about our childhoods, our passions and what we do for fun on the weekends. We aim to start sharing those more 'in-depth' posts next week.

In the meantime, I (Erica) am off to a horse show this weekend! Horses have been a huge part of my life since childhood. Having a relationship with horses taught me many things over the years – responsibility, empathy, communication, hard work, dealing with loss, and much more. I believe that every child (and adult!) should have the opportunity to spend time with a #horse, and at the very least, experience that sense of wonder that comes from standing next to kind-hearted animal of that size.

I currently have a handful of students who compete in an equestrian sport known as “eventing” and several of them are off to a large show this weekend in North Carolina. These kids have become part of our family over the years, and their own families have become an extension of ours as well.

I have been teaching in the equestrian field for a long time, and have been able to turn my love of horses into a career [more on that another day!]. Horses, and our relationship to them, have a lot of parallels to other areas of life – and I am so grateful for the opportunity to coach these riders in a sport that I love, cheering on their accomplishments and supporting them through the struggles.
