Boy, she's pretty, and you look so happy, you're just glowing!! I haven't ridden in 10-15 years for different reasons. The last horses we had, we sold because we had to board, and I hate boarding. I'm a very private person, and we couldn't just enjoy our horses in quiet solitude. Plus, I had a BF who was not a horsey person, had never ridden, and could not see with his own eyes the right way to ride. Riding with him was very embarrassing, both horses neck reined very well, yet he would grab a rein in each hand, hold each hand up as high as it would go, sit way forward and stooped over, darn, I wish I had a video to show!! It was the most embarrassing and ludicrous sight you have ever seen, and we would go out on the road, and people would be laughing and pointing!!
Then, I became disabled, I have neurapathy from diabetes, a fractured neck, and arthritis on my spine. I was just given a mare, but it willl be quite some time before I can ride her. I did sit in a saddle at the tack store, just to see what size, and it felt just like home!!! Thanks for sharing your story, and being such an inspiration. I have always been a sucker for a gorgeous palomino.
