Hey everyone, you might remember back in the spring we heard from Josh all about his first time riding a horse

Well, Josh is still at it, and improving his skills each time he goes out!

 

Way to go, Josh!  What a fantastic way to spend a sunny afternoon.

Josh and his roommate, Neil, also shared some more of their favorite things!  Heading out for a walk, lounging on the grass, and eating dinner out at restaurants all made the list…

Thanks to Josh, Neil, and their team (especially Anshulee) for sharing a few of their favorite things!  It all looks like great fun.  Way to go, guys!
