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!

Two Creaky Old Ladies

Two Creaky Old Ladies

Yesterday I got to ride Mia. When I got to the stable the stable hands told me the Mia had hung around the barn UNTIL someone asked if I, Jackie, was coming. Mia immediately headed out to the furthest part of the pen she was in, out to the other side of the riding ring. Then they told me she had done the same thing earlier, hanging around the barn until someone mentions my…

I Feel Secure While Trotting

I Feel Secure While Trotting

I know that this is an unusual new event for a rider with 45 years of riding. When I learned to post the trot at age 6 I had no problems and until my MS ruined my balance, proprioceptive sense, coordination, etc., I always felt secure trotting. However, for the last 5 years or so I started to feel like my breeches had a surface of slick glass as I started shifting…

Some Added Security in the Saddle

Some Added Security in the Saddle

This week I tried something new.

Several weeks ago, on the COTH Forum, when I asked about hip protection, another rider recommended a new product, rubbery pads that self-stick onto the saddle.

Ever since I started riding…

A Change Brings Me Back to Start

A Change Brings Me Back to Start

Debbie called me earlier in the week asking if I could postpone my lesson until 12:30 P.M. as she wanted to be with her grandson as he got ear-tubes Wednesday morning. Since it was going to be cold early in the day, and it was going to be even colder later in the week I agreed. We had never had a lesson where he had been turned out for hours previously so I was…

Finally I am Riding Again

Finally I am Riding Again

And it is SO GOOD to get back into the saddle!

I have just been walking because I got so weak while my cracked ribs healed. My entire body has to be brought back “on line” so I can ride safely and without irritating the horses. Right now walking the horse is the best thing I can do to get my body…

   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?
