I turn 50 this year and I've set a goal to take my two horses to Myrtle beach and participate in the annual beach ride fundraiser for heart.
For those who don't know, I am 8 years older than my dad was when he passed away from heart disease. He is the one who introduced me to horses and endurance trail riding.
My younger brother has a congenital heart defect and is alive and kicking after a successful open heart surgery to repair his heart valve.
My father-in-law passed away from heart disease as well. Our children never had the chance to meet their grandfathers.
This is my "why" for this event, that, and I get to ride my ponies on the beach! (I have a second horse should anyone wish to do a road trip end of October to early November. You would need to fly home as I plan to continue my 50th horse adventure from there!)
I know we all have our causes and appreciate you taking the time to simply read this. Should you wish to make a contribution to my efforts, it will go to a good cause and is greatly appreciated.
Positively and from the bottom of my heart
