Anyone who knows Sweet Briar should be aware of its reputation for an excellent horseback riding program. I have been privileged to ride for three years now (I skipped junior year because I couldn’t fit it into my schedule). However, this year has been my favorite, by far, because I love the horse I’ve been riding.
Grace is a three year old mare, and one of the sweetest horses I have ever ridden. She is owned by my riding instructor, Louise Goodling, and I feel so lucky that I’ve had the chance to work with her. We have come so far since the beginning of the semester; last week we jumped a two foot cavalletti!
