    Oh dear! I have had this view way to often as of late.

    Roadyy, it is not a matter of "if", its just a matter of "when" you will experience an unscheduled dismount. Unless, you are a Weeble, cause you know "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down".

    I wish I was a Weeble. Instead, I am more like Humpty Dumpty.

    I've had my share of falls-lots of road rash, but nothing broken, but some quite colorful bruises.

    Hi All!
    This thread is a great idea.
    Yes, I am over 40 and my 3 quarter horses help me to forget how much "over" I am.
    I actually have very little time to ride them, but I keep showing.
    I started riding when I was almost 6 years old and never stopped to spend time on a horseback. I tried all kind of English specialties such as jumping, endurance, eventing and even driving but the moment I learned about the western riding, I fell in love with it. It was not so common twenty years ago, here in Europe. I had to import QH from the US.
    Than I had back and neck problems, a few herniated discs, the doctors said I would risk to end up in a wheel chair and I had to reduce my hours on horseback. But I suppose this is an ordinary story in this forum ☺.
    I’m not only a rider, I also like to lean at the fence and watch the horses play around, I like to pet and talk to them and obviously give them treats . No, I am not what’s called a “horse-mom” here at our barn in Italy, I just enjoy horses in various different ways. I used to paint horses many years ago, photograph them and writing about them. The blog (and FB page – The Hoofprint) THE HOOFPRINT | Diary of an AQH filly is a literary experiment that uses stories told by a 2yo filly and my next published novel is about horses too.
    I had no time to read all the older posts in this thread, but I read enough to understand that the people here enjoy horses notwithstanding the older age and all kind of health problems. So I feel in excellent company.
    Thank you.

    Glad you joined us Sibyl. Hope your time with us is as enjoyable as it is for us.

    Stan should be on in another hour or so for his time zone ahead of us. Remember it will be Thursday morning for him when he joins us. If I'm right it should be a little after 7 am tomorrow morning for him. Lol

    Hey all! I've been pouting with Rick Naw....we're all still sticking around so we can pick on each other. Even Stan. What would our gang be like w/o him?

    Glad everyone seems to be doing good! It's hot here, again.

    Welcome Sibyl! Feel free to chime in about anything. We'll listen.

    Lori the barn looks awesome! You must be superhuman to take care of all that alone! I do good to take care of my little barn and try to make time for the laundry and other domestic chores. Plus must make time for painting projects

    Alex where are you, you were doing so good LOL

    Keep the stories coming, I'm reading them all even if I don't post anything about them.

    Got the new sewing machine threaded & tried out the stitching on a ripped sheet. Now I have some curtains to make for our windows & some for a travel trailer of our neighbor's-1 he is using as guest quarters, & 1 he sometimes takes into town w/him so he doesn't have to drive back late at night. Those will be easy-plain white curtains, nothing fancy. The ones for our house, I'm making out of bed sheets- an abstract flower pattern & a geometric pattern-both have a blue base. It's a lot cheaper than going & buying new fabric-we have to go to the next town over to have any choice of quality fabrics.

    So, does anyone know anything about the fleece on the underside of a saddle? Does it have to be replaced if there are bald spots? Could that be done with a glue gun? Would an old felt pad render patching materials? Any other ideas? My neighbor said the saddle maker here is retiring. Our boot & shoe repair shop is closed up. I guess I could take my things back to So. Cal. & just have him ship them to me when he is done. He always did a great job, but was tired of where he's at. Maybe I could tell him we could sure use his services here.
