Then reconnected with a highschool friend and his family last night! They showed up at our barn and ended up one of the other boarders is their son's reading tescher. It's such a small, small world:)

Hope it a great day for you all! My friend's 11 year old son was released from the hospital last night after having a stroke several days ago. Long way to go on the recovery front, but I'm thrilled to that the family is able to get back to living a full life together.

Cyn, so so close to me! Just out I20 a few miles west. Lease a horse from DBA and come ride with lonely me in my covered arena or let's go trail riding at Benbrook Lake! I say "my" covered arena because I have the place to myself weekday evenings and during daytime hours Sat. & Sunday. I board in a training facility with just a few boarders, nobody rides here. And of course, no trail riders. I'm lucky in a way but so
lonely

So sorry, TG, which one was that? Send him up here to our trainer and he will take care of him! I watched him take care of a snotty awful Percheron gelding who everybody else was afraid to get on. I know, too far from where you are

You're OK?

I'm really not fond of a bucker ...

I'm ok ... will be sore as heck tomorrow.

I think we have decided to have someone ride him for at least 30 days...

And who doesn't love high heels once n awhile? Really? Come on.....just like Sandra Bullock said - it really helps your posture and does great things for your breasts! LOL!!!

Are there no heel lovers here? I'm wearing 4" heels this eve on a dinner date with friends....come on ... they make your legs look great the higher you go! Just don't trip.
CC, I remember those days... haha
At this, uh, time of my life just the word "heels" hurts. Yes, I have some really nice heels that I wear only when I will be sitting most of the time. Those times become fewer and far between. I have problem feet, Morton's neuromas that I inherited from my mother. The right foot is especially bad, and now the huge bunion that has developed from wearing heels earlier in life. When in my 20's I was taking dance and also running. One day I just started crying because my feet were hurting so bad. My teacher yelled at me when she found out I was running. Eventually the running shoes got better.
These days, I frequently have to pull my right foot out of the stirrups when trail riding because of the pain. Feels like stepping on a rock, intense burning. My mother had surgery to remove the neuromas, but she says that the scar tissue from surgery is just as irritating. She played tennis almost everyday until she was in her early 40's, so had a lot of pressure on her feet, too.
Anyway, I am so glad that flats are popular now, because I do care about what I look like, and .... I teach high school so I am microscopically examined everyday by teenaged girls who probably think "oh if she would only..." about the way I look every day! One girl even told me last year that I should go buy clothes at a really chi chi boutique, Anthropologie, because it is so "me" and I would look great.... haha, sorry, I ain't spending that kind of money on anything but what really makes me happy, like maybe a new trail saddle!

We DO want to see prom pics, though, TBG!

Welcome Zip! There are a few english riders here too- TBJ is our resident hunter jumper and then the rest of us just sort of sit on/ride whatever fits our lifestyle the best (with aching joints, slow reflexes due to age, recovering from injury, just trying something new, too old to try something new, something that holds us in, something that lets us have room, or just whatever feels good to sit on at that point in time depending on when you got bucked off last ). Ok, so I speak for myself mostly (except the last part HAHAHAHA)....but welcome!

Clippityclop is finally getting to spend some time in the saddle!
