I meet lots of interesting people on our horseback rides in Red Lodge, Montana. Last summer I took a family of five from Canada who came to Montana on vacation. We had an enjoyable ride. The entire family seemed to really enjoy themselves. They loved the scenery of Montana and being in the great outdoors. After the ride, the mother came up to me and thanked me for such a wonderful experience. She told me that when they were planning their vacation to Montana she wanted to do one thing and that was to ride a horse with a real cowboy and I had made that happen for her. She then told me she has always been a little frightened of horses but she had to keep telling herself what John Wayne once said, “Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway.” She was so happy about her accomplishment. I was glad to help her achieve her goals.
