The tiny Victorian lady that periodically rules my conscience longs for the resplendent life of the landed gentry and all its graciously articulated politesse; one article of such minutiae would be the handwritten note.
Thankfully, such an indulgence exists today! If you shop some of the equestrian small businesses online, your order will be accompanied by a handwritten note on thoughtfully designed stationery. I am over and over pleasantly surprised by how lovely an experience receiving a handwritten note is. And that small business owners who are women and equestriennes keep alive this heartfelt tradition fills me with hope for our horse-spangled corner of the world.
(And sometimes you even get stickers, which is also amazing!)
