Well, my poor husband, the only thing we DON'T have is the boat! As for a shoe fetish, I don't have one per se, but my horse's shoes are so expensive I get nauseous every time I get the bill! And that's every 6 weeks or so. It sucks.
I grew up riding and showing Arabian horses. I was third in the country at U.S. Nationals last year and am going again this October to try and place even higher :D I currently show in the "hunter pleasure" division which has nothing to do with jumps. We just go around and look pretty and behave (hopefully.) The horses are fancy and beautiful. I did a lot of trail riding and nutty stuff as a kid and I do miss it. But living in Los Angeles does not allow for a lot of yahooing on the trails.
Every season I run through my head scenarios where I'd have to choose between riding or skiing. In the winter I can't imagine giving up skiing. In the summer I can't imaging giving up riding. Lucky me, I don't have to choose at the moment. God forbid we move to Ohio again.
