Amateurs Like Us: Holly Bailey's Greatest Gift Has Inspired Her To Combine Horses With Hospitality

It was a phone call in 2009 that resulted in what amateur rider Holly Bailey describes as “the greatest gift I’ve ever received.”

While she was attending Hollins University (Va.), Bailey had fallen in love with Assault Shaker, a horse in the college’s riding program. “I started riding him my sophomore year. He was a harder one to ride because he’d take off with riders after each fence,” Bailey said. “I got along with him the best of anyone who was there at the same time I was there.”
