@Henrietta Szathmary, I take horse riding lessons at Reyners Horse Riding Stables, and they have these outdoor stalls with room to roam and coverage, but they have dirt as bedding. Is that good for the horses?

I love horses. I hate using glue because of that. My mom says that if I keep studying horses, then I'll turn into one, lol. I hope to one day get a horse, sooner rather than later. This quiz was super fun. TTYL!
