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!

Pigs, Buzz-Bombers, Heat, Humidity, Oh My!

Pigs, Buzz-Bombers, Heat, Humidity, Oh My!

I had an interesting ride on Cider last Sunday at Shannon's farm. As Shannon saddled Cider I say my first buzz-bomber fly of the year, upsetting Cider, but she calmed down when Shannon put more fly spray on her and then put on her Amigo Fly-Rider exercise sheet and neck covering.…

My Base of Support Improves

My Base of Support Improves

This week, as I walked and trotted around the riding rings, I had to spend a LOT of time up in two-point at Debbie's stable because both Bingo's and Mia's backs were sorer than usual. Bingo had been used in a beginner lesson the day before, he is ALWAYS stiffer after someone else rides him, and Debbie had changed Mia's arthritis supplement because Mia had…

Cleaning and Conditioning Some Saddles

Cleaning and Conditioning Some Saddles

First, my rides. Last Sunday it was BEAUTIFUL, it was relatively cool, it was not very humid, the sun was shining through gorgeous white fluffy clouds, and I was so glad that I got to ride Cider! Not that Cider is any happier with my riding, she still points out how my balance is just too horrible to expect any straightness from her, so I have to…

It Takes a Great Amount of Time

It Takes a Great Amount of Time

Instead of another boring tale of another boring ride on Bingo, this week I will describe WHY Bingo's rehabilitation takes so much time. When I started riding Bingo on April 6, 2016, my first impression of Bingo's conformation was that he was a total disaster as far as suitability for a fine riding horse. Bingo had a VERY high croup, his back definitely sloped…

Rebel Without a Cause

Rebel Without a Cause

This week we are having a heat wave down here in NC, hot and humid, the type of weather where sweat drips off of my face. Today I did not ride Mia because the dew point was 75° F, and it is supposed to get up to 97° F in the shade. All week I had been…

   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?
