Truth be told, President Reagan hated flying. One time he was heard talking to a staff member regarding some upcoming travel and said, “the highest I want to go is on the saddle of a horse.”
There’s something to be said about seeing the world from the back of a horse. It gives us a different perspective of the world. After touring the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, I learned that President Reagan started his formative riding years in a cavalry saddle.
