Rita and her family call Nebraska home and now spend their time out riding any of their five Arabian horses as often as possible. At one time they bred, raised, and trained horses for show, having as many as 29 horses at one time. Rita is someone who truly adores her horses and counts them as members of the family. Now her time is filled with riding for the sheer joy of it.

"You've got to be kidding me! This is a great way to start the new year."
