When I first head what she was doing I was in awe. I mean it’s rather amazing and its someone I know and respect doing it. Someone who changed my life with the simple act of approving me to adopt my horse(s). She kept it to herself  for a while until it was official but […]

It finally melted… the snow, it finally melted. I made plans with my trainer to ride both the girls Saturday afternoon. Sunday is our usual day but she was working down the road with a friend of mine and her horses so we switched it up. Besides it was sunny and warm and by warm […]

Finally! I rode my horse! Okay I mostly walked because the ground was harder then i thought when i first got on and i didn’t get to ride the red-head because she has much more sensitive feets then the wild one. But i did tack up and get on. We did one trot set but […]
