I wish that I could "like" the NEVER too old to ride about 100 times! My farrier has a friend that is 75 and he often goes on 6 hour rides. I rode 5 1/2 miles today, and I feel a bit old right now.........

Wow nicker sounds a little scary. After I dropped off hunter I went back to barn and decided to take Scotty out. Poor guy was calling all day for hunter they are best buds now. He saw the trailer and came running up. Sorry bud no hunter anywho was really happy that Scotty loaded as he still isn't used to my straight haul. But I did it by myself and off we went. We went to a place that has nice trails around all these mansions. There were a lot of horse eating rocks especially the ones with moss on them. Tomorrow we ride again. I sure hope hunter behaves himself

That reminds me...last weekend, I went to a balanced riding clinic that was being held where I board. Two older women showed up. Both close to 70 or a little over. I knew of them but had never met them personally but knew that they ride every single day.

One was wearing a sling and her arm was bandaged from wrist to above the elbow.

She said she was moving some cows this morning when one turned on her horse and her horse reared and she came off. She landed on concrete and cut her arm on something. She had 15 stitches!

And she was there to watch the clinic since doc said she couldnt ride FOR THE REST OF THE WEEKEND!

I told her how impressed I was and she said life is too short to stop!

Wow!

Stan, hope your back feels better soon. All in all it seems like Bugs did pretty well considering the circumstances.

And wrist exercises...wasn't sure where that was heading!!!

Hunter...glad he made it safely and that it ends up being the perfect home for him.

Nicker...I would have been terrified if I spotted a loose horse while out on the trail! Glad it turned out ok.

I went to a new friend's house today. She has 7 horses and 2 donkeys. I had never really touched a donkey before and her donkey gives hugs! She also has some draft horses. Riding a large draft is on my bucket list and she is going to let me ride one of hers one day. Here is a pic of my donkey hug. Look at those ears!!! Sorry about the pic of my backside. Hubby had the camera.

Nicker that sounds like a scary ride, I'd have been worried too.

Stan, hoping all goes well with the move.

Hunter, glad the other Hunter has a new ideal home.

Corgi you win the award for best photo ever. I love that donkey hug, and I want one.

My friend had been telling me that her donkey gives hugs and I thought she was just being funny but he really does! He rests his head on your shoulder and then gets the most relaxed, silly expression on his face. He was the sweetest thing. Now I want one. Here is hubby's donkey hug!

I am going to need that donkey - not just any donkey, that donkey. Look at his bottom lip.
