A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
I love horses and cats and until very recently had two cats. I started to get back in to riding last Oct (08) after 8 years of being out of the saddle due to a back injury. I ride once a week now with the RDA who are amazing!
Do you have any pets?
I have one black Cat.

Have you ever felt that things have been so mad and so enveloping that you just need to be a little reckless and go and have some fun?

Things have been pretty tough for me this year and over the last few months I have had one thing and another effect me and tire me out.

Things are pretty hard for most people any way so, to go and have every day life that the normal fit human would cope with can be pretty difficult for someone with a chronic illness or disability to cope… Continue

Nice and Easy.

I'm back to riding again! That really makes me happy.

My ride this week was pretty relaxed compared to the previous weeks of preparation.

The others in my group that qualified are now working hard to prepare for the Nationals in a few weeks. so my ride at the moment is not so focused.

But I will get myself back in to that focus again, as I want to become the best rider that I can possibly be despite my FM - I don't want it to get the better of me.

Riding is my… Continue

Half term holidday

Just a short blog since it's half term this week, so no riding for me. I miss it already and the week is not quite halfway through yet!

I thoroughly enjoyed my week last week.

How am I feeling in myself?

well, the pain was really bad Fri through Sunday and is up and down at the moment, but I am very tired and fatigued. I am taking it easy this week so I can enjoy my lesson next week!

I have been pottering about the house, since I am car-less this week, My… Continue

The Big Day

I was so nervous! I felt really ill for two days!

Thursday was my first ever Dressage competition. It's the mid west RDA regional competition, So it's an important day for all those who entered qualifying classes. I entered a non qualifying class.

I felt incredibly smart in my jacket and pretty impressed with the hard work our groups helpers and instructors had done getting the horses ready and warmed up for us.

We were lucky with the weather as it was beautiful and the sun… Continue

Lesson Time!

It's been a funny week, I had a small FM flare up and that is just about starting to settle down. I feel like I have been trampled by a herd of horses at the moment, which is really annoying and very painful!

My lesson went well, though I wasn't as focused as I have been the previous weeks. I think because I was in a flare, it was messing with my concentration.

Pink was so good, bless him, he had a good warm up by my instructor in the previous lesson, so I didn't have to… Continue

Hey Cat!

Yes Canada is a lovely place...and sooo huge..My husband and I are hoping to be able to travel a little bit more and see more of it. We live in a fairly small town (growing larger,unfortunately) with countryside just 10 minutesa away...agriculture..cattle farms LOTS of horse farms and boarding stables around our area. There are a few places left to ride out...but as city people invade our area fields and woods that used to open to riders are now ...PRIVATE PROPERTY ...and
ATV's ,snowmobiles and motorized "kid's toys"...amazing how the horses get used to them...but it is still more dangerous than it used to be.
Oh. well...we can always move farther up north or out west and find tiny towns with open space. If you are into eventing we have many lovely properties to compete or just spend the day with your dog and your favorite company and enjoy the company of horses and horse people....they are after all the very best....Well how about yourself...are you lucky enough to have your own place or do you have to board like we do.....what kind of sport do you do ?.......Stuff like that....
Well must go...thanks for the contact and "friends request" I so enjoy hearing all about what others are doing.....Take care and looking forward to chatting again.....Ann....
