Melissa-jumping-Gateway_thu

“‘Tis the Season, that time of year when those of us in cold climates retreat to the indoors. Our horses get fuzzy and we have to start budgeting into our riding enough time to get them thoroughly cooled out and dry. To Do Lists get longer and gift giving anxiety starts. Who will I buy for? Did I leave anyone out? Am I going to find the perfect gift?…”
