I have this little girl who is obsessed with horses. Her blooming interest in all things equine began last year and has only been intensifying. (She has told us that when she grows up she is going to to be a cowgirl and live with a horse in a barn on our orchard.)
I think it's a wonderful passion and I'd love to foster it in her, but I am a little scared it's going to cost us thousands of dollars. Riding lessons, someday boarding and feeding a horse, all the equipment and time that goes into it...not exactly a budget-friendly hobby.
But then I look at this, the wonder she feels when she's with a horse and I want to do all I can to help her keep feeling that.
