Sweet Estes

Sweet Estes (“Dear North Texan,” winter 2010) brought her horses to North Texas in 1941-42. She intended to use their rental to pay for her education. We admired her grit and determination, at her young age. I wanted to take lessons, so I set out walking to the stables (nobody had cars then). I encountered a barbed wire fence 8 feet high and ended up caught on top and had to be “rescued.”

Next trip, I walked around the fence, but I did go. Thanks to Sweet, I enjoyed horseback while at North Texas.
