Fun Fact: One of Lori’s favourite childhood memories is learning how to ride a horse. Every summer we would visit my Grandparents farm in Alberta. My Grandpa was worried we may get our foot caught in the saddle, so I was introduced to riding by galloping bareback in the open pasture lands of the prairies. What an incredible feeling of freedom.
