    As another 'elderly' person, I think you are going about things the right way as you are!

    Thank you all for your time and impute. I told my trainer about the replies and he just grinned. I am a hard headed Irish man and will follow my plan. I appreciate your words of support. I just discovered this forum. It is very enjoyable and enlighting. I have spent my life taking care of a family and making sure their sails are strong and they know how to find true north. Now it is my time. Again, thanks for your time.

    Congratulations for investing in what sounds like a marvelous horse! You are being really smart with having a trainer work her and sound like you have a great plan! Your barn-mates sound rude. Pressuring someone to ride when they or the horse is not ready is rude, unsafe, and stupid. I don't know why people do that - I have experienced that as well, with young horses mind you. People love to push their ignorant opinions but have no idea what is best. You do. Ignore ignorant people. Good luck! Keep us posted on her training!

    Good luck with your horse. A word of advise from someone who is your age... use a mounting block or step stool to get on. LOL. I can barely get on from the ground anymore, danged arthritis makes it near impossible ;) But it doesn't stop me from riding.

    That's a nice horse on your avatar. What's the breeding?

    Sounds to me like you are making good choices. Go with the advice of the professional. Try to enjoy the "bark gossip" if you can. Some pretty funny stuff most of the time. It is in every barn but there usually is a core group of pretty good horsepeople and most barns. Find them and let the rest bounce off.

    Kevin,

    JoJo is quarter horse mare. The name on her papers is Hancock Smokey Jo. Her sire is Jo Roan Devil and Dam is Sheza Holly Tamale. I have read that the Hancock stud produces only blue Roans. She is doing great. I have read a number of your post. You appear level head, knowledgeable and with pretense. Very refreshing. After reading all of the replies my determination to follow our training program is only strengthen.


    Forgive my lack of dexterity in navigating this forum and replies. It took me 20 minutes to figure out how to post a pic.

    Hey, no worries. We all went through that learning stage here. She is a pretty well bred horse and Kevin is right, she is very nice looking too.
