  1. Hopefully you remember me! The lady that charged you at LAX at I Love LA . I was looking at you blog,great just like you said. Thanks for giving me your business card to look into your blog! Have a great day ❤️

    • Martha — thank you for reading, and for commenting! I just returned home from my Hawaii trip, and I went on my first ride this evening. Just fantastic! A quick trot through the woods riding one horse, leading along another, enjoying the pounding hoofbeats and lengthening shadows. Perfect! Nice to meet you! Aloha ~ Dawn
