When I was 9 years old I was introduced to the Western Way of Life, riding horses, involved in 4-H, and being around farm animals. What a great opportunity I had growing up and learning about animals, farming, ranching and agriculture. I enjoyed every minute of discovery learning, hands on learning and just exploring. This love of the Western Way of Life continues today with my own family. If you get a chance, try to engage in some kind of activity that lets YOU be a part of the Western Way of Life.
