I did as well when I took out trail rides but Mud Bay is really bad now for sinking sand. White Rock and Jerico Beaches are now really the only good ones to ride on. Centennial Beach is nasty mud.

I was looking for some picts for the beaches around here and came across a few photos of where I and CW (and a few others live). I never tire of seeing the mountains.

Beautiful!!!
I just hopped on my mare for a quick (hour) ride and want to just ask............. do any of you just want to get off and kick the crap out of your horse??!! Wow! What a "B" she was being!!! Balk, balk, balk! My gelding of course kept screaming like a little girl and she kept wanting to fight me and turn around. If I was in my saddle I would have handled things a bit differently, but bareback, well, I had to tire her out and make things very unpleasant to fight me and the good part was I won! But dang! I wanted to kill her at one point. I could see myself jumping off and just smacking the crap out of her. Wow, I feel like a bad person just saying that, lol. I just have to remember how much I love her when she takes care of me, lol.

End Rant! Cookies for those that read this...

Thank you for this (recommended) thread. Hope am in the right place,finally. Am 59 1/2 y/o. Started lessons @ 50,was doing pretty good 'till got scared of canter. A friend wanted to help..long story short,was way overhorsed,a freak thing happened (pavement worker waving a pamphlet), & 'tho manged to control his feet abit couldn't control his mind to not head for fence (knew I would die, so bailed,remembering to let go of stirrups). End result bad crash w/busted bones(ankle,ribs,pelvis from kick as he went to fence). I gave up my childhood dream,figuring was too old. Horsewoman co-worker recently pushed me into new lessons. Had one 2 wks ago. Could barely get one 'cuz let my body go (depression,no motivation,but no excuses I guess), & was far more scared than I thought I would be. That's my "introduction", & past has to be past. Have 2nd lesson this Sunday, w/not much more hope for my leg strength, but hope for my buried passion to be renewed. I do apologise for expressing so much,but it's where I've come from, but just need to go forward. Is this a good place to do that, & just share the tiny progress once in awhile? (not a good "chatter" as not 20 y/o!) Won't relate all this junk again unless asked! Thanks for the opportunity to connect.

I like cookies. If you don't believe just ask me and I'll tell you.


Trusty has never given me that kind of fit, but I have a couple of the others that lead me towards that feeling so I cut it short with a positive note.

Welcome TJ.
This is as good a place as any to express yourself. We all have a past that led us here so don't be hesitant about your experience.

Welcome TJ Congrats on getting back in the saddle. I did it 5 years ago and now love it! This is a great place to come and hang out.

Nvr2many I hear ya. I have been having a lot of issues with Hunter lately not wanting to leave the barn for trail rides. He was rearing and bucking but what scared me the most was when he would go sideways and not watch where he was putting his feet. I was so afraid he was going to fall on me. Oh and then he bit me so ya I kinda have wanted to kick the crap outta him. He is now almost back to being his normal great trail horse that loves to go on adventures.
