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!

Boredom Relief--I Try a Different Bit

Boredom Relief—I Try a Different Bit

Since I am still recovering from my trip up to Maryland two weeks ago I have not done much in the ring other than walk. This week Debbie was glad for me to just walk during my lesson since the ring was wet, wet, wet. For a while there I had been afraid that we were entering another drought, but for the past week the heavens have opened up, the crops are…

The Nineties Have Arrived

The Nineties Have Arrived

Yes, four days of 90ºF+ in a row. Summertime temperatures and it isn't even the middle of May. I guess it makes up for all those lows in the 20's this year.

So after months of…

I Finally Get Back to North Fork School of Equitation!!!

I Finally Get Back to North Fork School of Equitation!!!

It had been almost four and a half years, between my appendectomy, several exacerbations of my MS, and problems with doctors and insurance I could not get up there, but I FINALLY felt well enough to make the very long trip up to North Fork. When I called Karen Fenwick to set up my lesson she sounded glad that I was returning, and I…

Trying to Bring it All Together

Trying to Bring it All Together

The past few months have been a time of discovery for me, discovering just how badly my multiple handicaps affect my position, seat and aids when I ride horses. Between my Pegasus Butterfly saddle, the “rider's push-ups”, the Equicube getting my shoulders right, the Rainbow reins, and the old type Wellep snaffle bit, I discovered how abysmal my riding was and,…

I Try Out My "Old Type" Wellep Lever Cheek Snaffle

I Try Out My “Old Type” Wellep Lever Cheek Snaffle

Lat Sunday was a good day. The weather was nice, Shannon's ring was dry, my grandson was visiting, and I got to try out my new bit on Cider! This bit, the “old” type Wellep Lever Cheek Snaffle has some differences from the “new” type Wellep Lever Cheek Snaffle that I had used a little bit several years ago. The cable that goes through the…

   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?
