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!

Bingo Improves--Slowly

Bingo Improves--Slowly

When I arrived at Debbie’s barn her daughter, Sam, was hosing down a TALL chestnut mare’s left hock.  Another mare had kicked her there during turnout, and it was swelling.  When Debbie’s granddaughter led Bingo to me, I had her tie him up several stalls down from the wash stalls because the mare was not happy at all about being hosed.  Then Sam had to get Debbie’s help because the mare refused, refused, and refused again to take her medicine.  So I had to start…

Winter Tries to Return

Winter Tries to Return

This week was full of physical soreness for me, and changing weather for the horses. 

When I arrived at Debbie’s stable Wednesday morning for my lesson I told Debbie that I was not up to much activity.  That suited Debbie just fine; she had to give her soon to be endurance horse, the Arab gelding Tercel, another ride before her first formal long distance ride to get him used to his new endurance bridle and breastplate.  She also wanted my opinion on how…

Bingo Tells Me That I Am Just Not Steady Enough

Bingo Tells Me That I Am Just Not Steady Enough    

Wednesday morning was beautiful, cool enough so I could wear my Back on Track back and neck wraps and warm enough that I could wear my spring riding tights and just a light jacket against the remaining morning chill.  The sun was shining, the breeze was balmy, and the horses were happily soaking up the sun.

I did not use the BOT hock boots, since Bingo had made painfully clear that he really does not like them.  Of course,…

A Different Type of Stirrup Leather

A Different Type of Stirrup Leather

This week was so much better for me; I got to ride three times on three different horses!  The weather cooperated as far as precipitation, though there was a cold North wind each morning.  At least it was above freezing all three mornings, a big improvement over last week.

My riding teacher, Debbie, has been making me work on my lower leg more as I have been adapting to my latest saddle, the Pegasus Butterfly saddle.  Due to this saddle’s…

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…

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
