    Hi am new to the forum, and its so nice to see a page where there are *older* riders :).

    I am 58 this year, and had to retire my old boy who is 26, and was going to give up riding, but just had my home bred Fries x boy broken in, and he now my new riding horse, he is such a lovely boy and very safe - maybe cos we hand raised him he thinks I am him mum lol. So now I have my last riding horse to have fun on, and hopefully go out and do some low level eventing on him, plus lots of dressage days and enjoy him.

    Stan, sounds like you have your logic all figured out. Good luck. I suggest you mgiht also tell her over a nice steak or chop, and suggest some nice trip or something She would enjoy as a consolation prize....

    And, pray tell, exactly how did they get the horse out of the cattle truck? And back in!???

    Wow Stan I sure love bugs! Hmmm I doubt there is any safe way to tell She that you are going on the trek. You might just want to go to the corner and start from there lol.

    I hope Hunters leg will be ok soon too. It is still swollen today but he is walking on it so much better. We did have the rearing stopped and he totally shocked the girl that was leading him is he is usually quiet as a mouse. She did say that they were all full of beans that day. The BO has been taking him out and ensuring no issues are happening. We plan to start using him as a lesson pony and I can't have him raring with the younger girls.

    I would so love to come ride on one of your treks, it is such beautiful country there and looks like fun! I doubt I would have gone on the trail that you turned around on either. Hunter isnt quite stable on his feet yet and I wouldn't want him to slip. Look forward to seeing pictures of your great trek!

    You are not going to believe this, the **** thing jumps in. They back up to some high ground and in it gets and out the same way. If there is a ramp of any discription available that is also used. I wish I could get my horse to do half of what that one can do. The lady that leads out in these treks horse will undo knots. We often watch him mouthing the rope and gets it undone then he just stands there as if to say told you so.

    Ladytrails: Consolation Prize, she does not need consoling, she has my return to look forward to.shock:

    Hey folks google The Great New Zealand Trek. Some of the photos are worth a look. A few years ago it past by our place and went down the beach.

    How come your horse is going to be a session horse. I thought he was being readied for the show arena.

    Or Kiwi. I'm putting my money of Kiwi
    Time for a pool winner takes all for getting the heritage of Xena right.
    $5 an entry and the chance of collection is very small if not impossible.
    New Zealand dollars folks they arn't worth anything


    AlexS, has taken British and in for $5 I entered her
    Stan, I'm voting Kiwi $5
    Pool stands at $10
