Like a lot of little girls, I was absolutely horse crazy starting at about the age of 6. I took horseback riding lessons, I loved burying my face in the nape of their neck and I even didn't mind mucking out the stalls. My father was a doctor and so we had some means - I begged him for a horse. He promised me when I turned 16, he would buy me a horse. That's the danger of a promise. People might remember that you made it.
