Mother and grandmother Barbara Morris saddled up on Sunday to spend time riding through JMU's arboretum with what matters most to her: her family.

Matt Hickley, with Classic Carriage, worked alongside horses Chip and Mike to make sure mother's get a ride around the arboretum on their day.

"It was perfect. It was a chance for all of us to get together and spend some time together," Morris said. "All of us like to be outside in nature."

"It's a lot of fun," Hicks said. "We come here every year here to do this. We're sold out every year. It's a nice way for mother's to enjoy the afternoon."

Morris drove nearly an hour to spend time with her grandchildren, children and their families.

She works with horses in a therapy program and said the ride fit her personality.

"It was very relaxing, it was. It gave us a chance to talk a little bit and be together. It was great." Morris said.

Most of all, Morris is glad she got to share her passion for horses with her family.
