Horses brought me to this story. I began riding as a little girl, and reluctantly continued as a teenager. My reluctance stemmed from being a part of a blue collar family that did not don expensive outfits or belong to exclusive social circles as my counterparts did.

Later, I took riding lessons to fulfill a college physical education requirement. I found myself riding for hours after class was over on the unfinished still-dirt Ohio interstate. Being on horseback gave sweet relief from the rigors of a double major in political science and philosophy.
