I am 76 years old, and was born loving a horse. Don't know where this came from, as no one on either side of my family loved a horse (that I knew of). My family couldn't afford to buy or keep a horse for me, but as soon as I had my first job..guess what. I bought a horse, a very gentle TWH. He let me learn about horses without having a single bad experience. My husband and I bought 8 acres of land, and had many pleasure horses over the years. I later showed Saddlebred out of a show barn and then discovered week-long organized trail rides in Tennessee. After a divorce 12 years ago, I bought a motor home that I pull my horses with, and think nothing of loading up at my age, and driving 12 hours through the North Carolin and Tennessee mountains to join friends I have made at these rides..have even lined up five rides in succession, and just lived out there for that time. Hey, you only go around ONCE, right.
