From Endurance to Dressage
What is it with me and greeting cards lately? I never stop and read cards, yet twice in the past month I've been stopped in my tracks by the truth on a Hallmark. Remember this one?
While waiting in line at my little post office within a liquor store - and really, we have a POST OFFICE in a LIQUOR store, I turned around and saw THIS gem staring me in the face.
The caption inside read, "do you on your birthday." What better advice can there be? Preach on, greeting card, preach on!

Thank you for the cultural insight for someone so far away. It's so strange to see my culture through the lens of the Internet and Amazon streaming.

I lived abroad during my senior year of high school, long before the internet, and I was always fascinated by news of the US. There is definitely a different viewpoint when you see or hear about the US through foreign media.

About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
