In the interview Taylor talks about a conversation she had with her mother that changed the course of her life, "My mom always wanted me to ride horses because that's what she loved. But at some point she realized I wasn't as crazy about horses as I was about singing, and she told me, 'You don't have to ride. You should only do it if you love it -- not because I love it."
