Over the last 10 months I have been asked over and over if I could make my old CDs into MP3 files to automatically download onto your computer or phone. You also asked me to make NEW MUSIC that you can add to your riding library.

Well, here they are at long last. . .the New Digital Riding With Soul™ MP3 Albums!

As with many of us, my legs don't work quite the way they used to. Arthritis in my hips, prevents me from doing much in the way of lateral movements. Can anyone recommend a book or DVD that shows how to teach those types of movements in hand, and/or in the saddle, but without  having to use leg pressure?

So, I officially joined the 50 crow yesterday on Sunday!  And celebrated my first day in the 50's decade with a trail ride on my somewhat steady steed Guinness (I'm on the dark bay).  Fabulous time, and I know that the 50's will be my best decade yet!  Great to join this group!

Thanks Jackie...I will look into the Back on Track stuff. 

I am here in Tuscany and have found a western riding school a few miles outside of Lucca. Seems they have a very good reputation, and all their horses are Mustangs! Wouldn't that be a treat!  They offer 1,2, and 3 hour trail rides thru the countryside of Tuscany, vineyards,...anyone out there ever been riding in Tuscany?

Hi Gayle, welcome back!

I do not have your diagnosis.  However I've had decades of sporadically suffering lower back pain (resulting from a car wreck 30 years ago). 

Yes, for the first three years riding made it worse, a lot worse.

What I have found has worked the best for pain and mobility is the Back on Track stuff.  When riding (either on a horse or in a car) triggers my back I get whatever Back on Track product I have in reach and try to keep it on the painful place for at least a few hours.  Usually the pain and debilitating stiffness GOES AWAY until the next time I trigger it.

Good luck in finding a solution that works for you!

HI Horse lovers!   Been while since I have visited here.....I was wondering if anyone has experienced a condition called sacroilitis....inflammation of the sacroiliac joint in other words. I do not know if horse back riding has contributed to this, or it is a combination of the aging bones, and other life stele activities. Any experience with this problem?
