Here’s a very nice piece on a woman who has given her whole life to teaching kids how to ride. It’s only slightly on topic, but I love this quote:

Each time Hollyday calls out an instruction, she is answered by a young voice or two saying, “Yes, ma’am.”

And each time she hears that reply, her head gives an imperceptible nod in appreciation of the girls’ manners.

“These girls are home-schooled, and they are the most polite of the lot,” said Hollyday as she donned a straw hat to shield her face from the hot August sun.
