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!

Indirectly Helping MJ's Knee

Indirectly Helping MJ's Knee

I approached my lesson on Wednesday full of confidence. I now have my own, private, set of front leg boots for MJ. I don't have to tire myself by hunting for them anymore, they are clean, and I can be SURE that MJ's right knee feels more comfortable while moving.

For me while riding MJ this boot…

No Boots, No Go

No Boots, No Go

The heat and humidity are not letting up much down here in NC.

Since forgetting to put on my Q30 collar I now put it on before I leave the house. At least my brain is protected from moving around in my skull as the car moves over the sometimes bumpy roads and driveways. It felt tight at first but by the time…

My Ankle Acts Up

My Ankle Acts Up

Last week I wanted to get out of the house. I walked down the gravel road to see the neighbor's horses in their paddocks, I just wanted to see horses and I wanted to smell them too! I walked with my two canes, slowly and carefully, and I never felt anything wrong.

That afternoon my right ankle swelled up,…

A Good Cushion Can Help

A Good Cushion Can Help

I got to try my new ThinLine shock absorbing pad on MJ during my lesson on Wednesday.

Addison helped me groom MJ and tack him up until Debbie drove up. We put MJ's Fenwick Western pad on first with the ThinLine+ Contour pad on top of it, then the saddle. I had brought out a longer girth just in case…

Time for a Change

Time for a Change

Sorry I've been gone for a while. NOTHING much was happening, sometimes the weather did not cooperate with my riding, Shannon had health problems, and sometimes my gut was not happy with the world. MJ has decided that his old method of making his back as hard as concrete is the way to go in the riding ring.…

  • Hi Jackie! Just reading your message now!! Sorry I've been MIA, same here, hiding from Pandemic. Ontario is just starting to open up a little. So many small businesses closing, it's very sad. My daughter is a server and the 2 places she worked at have been closed since March 2020. Luckily I have a job and still been working through this whole thing, steel business, considered an essential service. 
  • I haven't seen Cooper of much, he's so far away, but thankfully there is someone who rides and exercises him at the barn. Did get to see him on my birthday May 15th.
  • I haven't ridden since 2018, gained weight and feel yucky. Have to get back it soon!
  • Hope you are well, still keeping up with your riding, that's great!

   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.
