Heather Wallace is a returning adult equestrian and mama writing about her own journey to be bold in the horse world and beyond. She started riding again after having her daughter, and things were a little different. Horses seemed higher up and she didn't bounce like she used to do either. Despite being less flexible and still overthinking everything, she finally buys a pony of her own. That's when the real confidence-building begins.
Adulting with Horses continues where Confessions of a Timid Rider leaves off. Heather finally gets a pony of her own and with that, the freedom to do things her way. If Confessions is "how it started", then Adulting With Horses is "how it's going". Don't miss how a timid rider steps out of her comfort zone and focuses on being just a little bit bold both in the saddle and out.More info →
