I’ve just recently begun taking horseback-riding lessons and adore getting out into the open country air after working all week amongst concrete. On any given Sunday, you can find me driving around the East Bay well after my lesson is over, looking dreamy-eyed at all the horse ranches and rolling hills dotted with vineyards. Wouldn’t it be incredible to have a gorgeous house with a couple of horses romping out back and a vista of vineyards? Well, I’m afraid I will have to dream on. But if you have the moolah, you don’t have to.
