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!

Bitter Cold and Warmer Rains Interfere With My Riding

Bitter Cold and Warmer Rains Interfere With My Riding

My apologies for missing three weeks of blogging.  What is there to say--lows in the 20’s F, and often rain on the days that were warm enough for my scheduled lessons.  It is hopefully the last gasp of winter.  I do take comfort with the idea that several nights in the low 20’s F after weeks of warm, spring like weather may kill many fly larvae, reducing the plague of flies that come to the Southern states during the spring or…

Riding the Horse That is Brought out for You

Riding the Horse That is Brought out for You    

When I started riding in 1957, there was a different culture around in the riding lesson world.  Stables that gave riding lessons did not have perfectly conformed or perfectly trained horses.  There were several reasons for that.  One reason was cost, perfectly conformed and trained horses have always been EXPENSIVE animals and no riding stable wasted these rare animals in a lesson program with ever changing riders of various abilities…

Sitting Up Straight Takes a Lot of Effort

Sitting Up Straight Takes a Lot of Effort

Ever since I started using the Equicube for one to four minutes a week, I have been tired.  The rest of the time, I try to replicate the spinal alignment I get from using the Equicube, both on horseback and just walking around on my own two feet.  I have to retrain my body how to stand, sit on horseback, move with the horse, and how to walk on my own feet while keeping my spine straighter and my face vertical.  I get some muscle aches too, in…

Progress in Fixing my Slouching Back

Progress in Fixing my Slouching Back

 

When I started working a lot on my two-point in my new saddle I improved BUT my back muscles started hurting while I did it.  After working religiously on my two-point position for five months my back muscles still hurt every time I get up in the two-point position.  Obviously, I have to do something to strengthen these muscles but I could not figure anything out that worked within the limits caused by my Multiple Sclerosis, especially the…

I Prove that I am not a Wimp

I Prove that I am not a Wimp

Yesterday morning it was above in the low 40’s F, thick clouds, and with a brisk north breeze/wind.  It was cold and raw, and when Darryl put Mia in the wash stall, she looked at me pointedly and I put her BOT butt blanket over her back.  Then I rushed to groom her head, ears and mane, and I put her BOT poll cap on.  Finally, Mia stopped giving me emphatic LOOKS with slightly unhappy eyes, she was just warm enough where she ached so she could relax and…

Thanks Jackie! I'm so excited - Nurtural just launched its crowdfunding on indiegogo! This is the link - is it ok to share here? http://igg.me/at/help-horses-help-people-nurtural/x/10776424

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?

Thanks for the welcome :)  Our Shires are such a hoot - we just love them.  Ours aren't as big as some (17.1 and 17.3 hands) but that's fine with me and I'll be riding 5 year old regularly as soon as we get some decent weather up here.

Here's Corva, our now 5 year old as a 3 year old

and Jodie, our teenager broodmare
