Yea, I'm going through such riding withdrawels that I'm jumping on their muddy backs while they are eating just to SIT on one for a few minutes. You would think a 40 year old mother is more mature than that right?! Pshhhh. Whatever.

OMgosh, nu, that's crazy about the sleeping pill package! What was this UPS driver thinking!!! I've been hearing so many nutty delivery stories lately. That time of year!

Agave Hurricane's website says they offer Christmas light rides! I sent an email to ask for more info. It'd be fun to ride a broke horse, since it's been too muddy to do anything with my own greenie...

Western or English?

There is always Parklane Equestrian Center if you need to stay in Dallas proper; nice indoor arena, but you will pay for the convenience of being in town. Mostly English riders, but they generally have a western instructor available.

Rocking M Stables is also in Dallas proper, focusing on Dressage, Hunters, Jumpers. I got a really good vibe from the people I spoke with there when I was considering taking lessons over leasing/owning, but decided I really do prefer western stock type horses.

There are several places south toward Cedar Hill, Waxahachie, Hutchins, Midlothian. And tons north toward Richardson, Plano, McKinney. Just depends on what area you need to stay in and what discipline you want to focus on!

I've only ridden Western so far, but I might be interested in trying English. I don't need to stay within the city of Dallas. I actually live in Rowlett, and can travel a little ways, but closer would be better.

BKLD I also know of a Rockin M (but in Blue Ridge). It's the barn where we previously boarded Acey. They offer day rates to ride (Western), have different levels of horses, and two indoor arenas. PM me if you want the contact info. :)

NU, I've been telling hubby that I need a permanent wooden box outside the gate with a flip lid just for package delivery - about the size of a tack trunk - so packages will be safe and dry until we get home to get them. I was telling hubby about your problem with the dang dog and postman/ups deliveries and he says:

She needs to get a wooden box outside the gate with a flip lid just for package delivery - so packages will be safe and dry until she can get to them.

??!!!

I should make him build me two and send you one. And remind him it was his idea to begin with.

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

Clippityclop any creature with gonads needs to believe any idea originated from them.
Myself excluded of course.
Now go use your Scarlet Ohara impersonation and motivate him to do it.
Flirting and flattery along with his favorite meal works wonders I am told. Shalom
