"Why did you buy 4 saddles for one horse??" "You don't go to the doctor but work 2 jobs to keep the animals??" Oh my favorite... " WHY do you need special pants to ride in?" Umm because my jeans are not comfortable on my fat booty DUHHH.

I was working at a local cardiologist office a few months ago when the subject of horses came up.

He told me riding horses was excellent exercise.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Yet riding "isn't a sport" and "all you do is sit there", didn't you know? ;)

I am looking a broodmares.

Bought one with a foal by her side and bred back.

I convinced my husband you have to spend the big money for success.

Now, I found a deal......

He doesn't like her because she doesn't cost enough.....

My daughter has mild case of scoliosis. The doctor recommended good core building activities to strengthen her muscles and protect her back.

Daughter "You mean like riding horses?"

Doctor "Absolutely, especially if you ride dressage."

Me "Can you write us a prescription for that?"


Best doctor's visit EVER!!

I can vouch for that!

One of my neighbors asked if their grandchild could pet Indie, so we came over and let the little girl pet my horse and go about doing all the cute things kids do when they finally get to see a horse up close.

Her grandmother said to me; "I remember back when my grandfather had a white stallion, she was such a nice horse that I got to ride her everywhere all the time."

I just nodded politely and kept my comments to myself

After reading the criticisms I think I shall keep my mouth shut tight when I'm around any activity I'm not familiar with. God forbid I should ask what seems like a valid question only to learn later that I asked a really stupid question.
