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!
Do you have any pets?

My Plans Are Upset--But At Least I Get to Ride Tilly Again

My Plans Are Upset--But At Least I Get to Ride Tilly Again    

I got to the stable Wednesday, all prepared to ride Tercel again and ready to see if I could get my Stubben Siegfried to fit him.  Of course I also brought out my EZ-Fit saddle to use if the Stubben did not fit at all.  I got there, Debbie’s car was not there, I went into the stable and Debbie’s daughter Sam told me that Debbie’s mother had died the night before, so everything was in total confusion.  Sam kindly gave me a…

Tilly is a Pony

Tilly is a Pony    

The heat wave continues down here in NC, highs in the 90’s as far as one can see.  I just got to ride once this week, but to help alleviate my boredom I got to ride a horse I’ve never ridden before!

Tilly is a pony, about 13.3?  She is a sort of “dusty” palomino with a lot of pink skin around her muzzle.  She is 30 years old, and I learned a little about her history.  She was supposed to be horse sized (her dam was 16.1,) but her dam died the day after birth…

The Summer Doldrums

The Summer Doldrums

It has been rather hot down here, weeks of highs in the mid to upper 90’s F.  In spite of having no air conditioning in my mobile home my MS has not gotten much worse, at least I am not stumbling all over the place and falling, and the horses are still letting me keep contact with the bit.  It has been so hot that most of my painful muscle cramps have gone away and I have been able to stop using the Back on Track things on myself and the horses I ride.  I think the…

Forty-Five Years--Experience

Forty-Five Years--Experience

Forty-five years ago today I finally got my first horse, Hat Tricks, after wanting, desiring, yearning and begging for a horse for thirteen years.

When I got my first horse I felt WONDERFUL.  But I had almost no experience with horses.  Just trail riding for 4 years as a kid in South America (horses already groomed and tacked up) in no way gave me enough experience to deal with owning a horse.  Luckily, due to reading every non-fiction book on…

Hot and Muggy

Hot and Muggy    

Summer weather has arrived down here in NC with a vengeance.  Highs in the upper 90’s F, lows in the mid 70’s F, the sweat pours off of me, the horses come in from the paddocks with sweat matted coats, the insects are super active, the cows in the neighboring pasture congregate in the pond, and we appreciate any breeze.  We wish for cooler weather in vain, the coolest high for the next ten days will be 93 F, and we may get several days at 100 F or higher.  It is far…

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
