Hello, Foxhunter. I LOVE your story! The way you told it, I can picture it in my mind as it happened. What an amazing lady your mother was…riding at 80…and bareback. Just amazing! I never tried that and am quite sure I never will! You must take after your mother quite a bit?
Northernstar, thank you for the welcome. I have lots of memories of watching “The Monkeys” on Saturday mornings as a child. I didn’t realize Davy was an avid equestrian.
With Grace, I enjoyed checking out your blog. You and the others I’ve followed a little on this are such an inspiration to a re-starter like me. Looking forward to following your story and to see what comes about as far as finding the perfect horse for you!
Country Woman, likewise I am looking forward to following your story as well and hope you are successful in selling your lovely creations. It’s just a matter of getting your work out there for people to see and I bet it will take right off!
I’m supposed to have my first lesson tomorrow (depending on snowstorm or not) on a gentle giant/Percheron/Appy….having last been on a horse 28 years ago. My bottle of ibuprofen is already in my pocket! My husband is going to be there filming…not sure if that’s a good thing…we’ll see.
