"Seeing the country from the back of my horse" is more than just a statement of fact, it is our "way of life".

In Four, Three, Two...... Lights! Camera! Action! How often when you get ready to ride does your life seem like a scene from a movie? Was it an action adventure, a serious drama, a cartoon or more of a tear jerker? And, were you the star, a guest star, a scene stealer or crew member behind the scenes. When you stop and think about it much of our lives are like a movie and depending on where you were in the above list, it may be inspiring or depressing.
