In my early twenties I was in a nasty automobile accident, and my parents made me get rid of the horses.....a long recovery was ahead of me.....
Since then, every chance I got, I jumped on a horse...never enough time in the saddle for me.....
Luckily, Just 5 short months ago I was offered a 8 yo mare horse to "keep and love" , as she really wasn't able to be ridden. I couldn't have just ONE, so I found a 24 yo mare to keep her company. I cried the day they arrived.....I never thought I would have horses of my own again....once in the blood, ALWAYS in the blood!! :)
Welcome to the over 40 crowd, always nice to have new people here
I am happy you have horses again
Good luck with them
