Another thing I found during my office-cleaning rampage project was a little photo album with a few old photos from my early riding-lesson days. For some reason, a lot of my horse- and riding-related memorabilia ends up in my office instead of at home. I guess that’s because my job is horse-related too.

At any rate, here’s a photo of me and a pony whose name I don’t remember, before one of my early riding lessons. This photo was probably taken sometime around 1980.




I was wearing what was, at the time, my favorite t-shirt, with the U.S. Equestrian Team logo on it. My younger self would never have guessed that I’d now be working in “the business.”

But I still have that t-shirt.
