For the longest time horses have fascinated me, but I've never had the chance to go riding (yet). So, each time I am near horses I am some combination of awestruck by their majestic nature and jealous of the people who get to ride them frequently.
Savannah takes that a step further, since she not only rides horses, but has several years of training under her belt so she may compete in equestrian show jumping and dressage events. As we waited for a missing part of her riding uniform, Savannah showed me how she grooms and prepares her horse before a ride, and told me about what the high school is like these days - Savannah will be a Senior at my (high school) alma mater beginning this September, and is a member of the Class of 2017.
We didn't photograph any jumps because it was becoming too dark to safely perform any.
