I began riding horses when I was 12 years old, mostly because my sister was horse crazy, and it seemed like something fun to do. On Saturday mornings and every day during the summer, we would wake up early for Mom to drive us to the local mall where a school bus would then pick us up and take us to a beautiful farm owned by one of the country’s most famous horsemen, Max Parkinson.
Five truths I learned from my experience with horses: 1. Fear dissipates up-close. 2. Mutual respect is liberating. 3. Love and commitment are actions. 4. Beauty and power can co-exist. 5. Relationships are everything.
My childhood was wrapped up with horses; their majesty, mystery, and bare truths I carry with me to this day.
MR Equestrian Collection is my tribute to them and the universal values they share with us all.
