A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
I got my first horse 40 years ago today (7-4-1970, I was 19) after having trail ridden in Chile and Uruguay for four years while in grade school.
I am now disabled with Multiple sclerosis. I still ride due to the kindness of others (human and equine}.
I now ride Forward Seat on the flat, since I am too disabled to jump.
I adore Arabian horses!

Does Bingo Actually LIKE His New Bit?

Does Bingo Actually LIKE His New Bit?

I have spent this month experimenting with the Fager bits. On Cider I have been using the Fager “Lilly” single jointed bar relief bit with and actual improvement with contact. On Bingo I tried the Fager “Fanny” single jointed tongue relief bit (“uh, no, I don't think so”) and the Fager “Frida” double jointed tongue relief bit.…

Riding Between the Showers

Riding Between the Showers

Wednesday morning was sort of dreary, passing showers left the ground damp and there was a breeze. Driving to the stable raindrops would start to fall, taper off, stop, and start up again. Since Wednesday was the only day I was guaranteed a ride we just drove on, maybe it would stop precipitating by the time Bingo was ready for riding.…

Small Bit Guards are a Total Pain

Small Bit Guards are a Total Pain

And once I realized it life became much easier.

I have been using my new Fager titanium mouthed bits and I got interested in their bit guards. The promise was that they were easy to put on (and take off), and that promise was fulfilled beyond measure. Since I have cursed out bit guards more…

It Sure Feels Like Winter

It Sure Feels Like Winter

Apparently it was the Siberian air mass visiting NC this week. It was cold, with a pretty brisk North wind and it just sucked the energy out of me.

Since Wednesday morning was too cold to ride I did not get my lesson until Friday. Friday morning I opened the front door to see what it felt like and I…

I Try Out Two New Bits

I Try Out Two New Bits

After a week without riding I was sort of frustrated. I had two new bits that I was eager to try out on the horses. I really cannot complain too much if I can't ride because of rain, we have been getting dryer and dryer down here in NC. The ponds are shrinking and the creeks and river are low.

This…

   I think daily of that, as I ride my horse. I know my years are numbered. I already lived longer then I should of. Funny? I feel as long as I can ride Dolly I will live. I feel she sustains me. But I know that's not true.. But I feel so different riding her, no matter is its hot, cold, or even raining. For some reason, She has such power over my feelings, The pain I'm in,, seems to just flow away.. 

The healing power you speak of,, is amazing.. It's real. I can hardly walk when I get there sometimes. Yet when I ride her I get off and can walk along at a good regular pace.... Life is amazing--If you just let your inner you, feel it!!

   Hi Jackie;

    Thank You for friending me. I rode horses in my 20's to 40's.. I became very ill, Learning I had renal kidney failure, and fibromyalgia. I had 6 hours of back surgery, and was never suppose to walk again. But I did! I at 59 started riding horses again, We moved to SC  and I rented horses a few times,, This is where they brought in Dolly, We had had a flood here, and she was by a levee that had broke. For a month she was inside a barn standing in water up to her back,, She was bones.. I saw then trailer her in. I was in a bad mental way.. I talked to her owner.  she wanted to sell her,  I was suppose to stop riding, but something about this horse, pushed me to her.. I bought her the next week.. We put the weight back on her, and we because special soul mates, almost spiritual. So? Riding later in life-- when I wasn't suppose to, she saved my life,, and I certainly saved her life,, 

    Your a brave person, I commend your effort to be with your horse..

I like it a lot. It has helped me with my hands, I tend to be rough sometimes. So this helps a lot. It also is forcing me to use my legs and stomach to direct since there is no neck reining at all. It's really easy to put on too. When/if I get horses I want to use only bosal bridles.  :D

this is another view of his bosal bridle. ( I'm on him)

I believe it is a "real"  bosal.  Here is Cody wearing the bosal bridle.

Thanks for the welcome. I'm puzzled. For some reason even though I joined the community and for some time have liked the FB page, I can't 'like' or comment on anything there. Why?
