A Horse is a Horse of Course of Course
The horses at our college's horse farm
The college that I work at has an equine program. It's actually the program that we're probably the most known for. Because of our equine program, we have a beautiful horse farm adjacent to campus. Sometimes, on my lunch break, I walk over to the horse farm and enjoy these amazing and beautiful creatures. I started doing this back in the fall and it really is one of the most wonderful parts of my day.
We're a rural college to begin with, so the combination of our rural location and the horse farm makes for such a beautifully serene experience. When I am at the horse farm, all the sounds of mankind (cars, people talking, machinery) are nowhere to be heard - save for the occasional tractor in the distance. It is medicine for the soul, as I like to say.
I really want to learn more about horses. One of the things on my "2012 bucket list" is to take horseback riding lessons. Do you like horses? Have you ever ridden?
