Ok, I did rides in the SE region from '05-'08. Some of you might remember a bareback gaited horse rider who could barely walk. (long story on being forced to ride bareback. Let's just say that RA took out my ability to use stirrups long ago....) Then I got real bad off with my RA for many years. Could barely ride for several.
Now I've gotten my health back (quite unexpectedly!) and am training for the first time 100% healthy. Headed to LBL for my first ride in 6 years. Though my two mounts have completed several 30 mile training rides in good time. (these are mine and daughter's mounts from '08 - experienced horses now in their prime at age 11 years)
So if you're going to be at LBL and are riding on Sat. Look for a bareback rider all in blue tack on a 13hh spotted saddle pony. I'll probably be stuck behind a bay saddle horse with a youth rider - going at a 9-11 mph steady rate...... And say hi!!!!
I'm also scheduling BSF this fall. Come on out - let's have fun!
