Hi Allie,

Thank-you so much for the additional information, and he is such a gorgeous horse! I wish I could say that I met your criteria, but the truth is I just really love horses and wanted an opportunity to ride. If Denny needed someone to come and visit him and exercise him by taking him out for a walk or ride around the ring, that would be perfect. However, I really don't have any experience in showing. I really hope you can find someone that will be exactly what you are looking for and I wish you a speedy recovery!

Thanks so much for your time.

Natalie,

Natalie, I appreciate you taking time to reply back. Unfortunately I am looking for just a little more than that, BUT if nothing comes to fruition soon, I will contact you as a light exercise rider :) Thank you so much!

Aw Allie, I'm sorry. You're doing the best for your horse though. I've got my fingers crossed that you'll be back in the saddle soon and in the meantime I hope you find a good fit to keep your boy working.

If only I lived in Alberta...

Hi - I just saw your posting for Denny. I am a dressage rider, transposed to Calgary from the States for a couple of years - and am horseless at the moment. I am definitely interested in talking to you and meeting Denny. In what area of Calgary is he boarded?
This is my first visit to this forum - in fact, I only signed up so that I could post a reply to your post (having found it through Google). I'm not quite sure of the protocol here - so don't know if it's kosher to post a phone number or email address here. I'll wait your reply here.
Thanks,
Linda

I must have missed something. What happened (if I may ask)? Are you alright?

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Hi Linda,
Welcome to the forum! Denny is boarded in the SouthWest, near Bragg Creek. I will fire off a PM to you!
Best,
Allie

Sunny, I got kicked back in May. I tried riding again in August, and blew my knee out again. I am now "a medical marvel" according to my physiotherapists as they haven't a clue what's wrong. Haha. It could be anywhere up to 2 years before I can ride again.

I'm sorry. I'd hate to have to lease out Sunny :(

Best of luck. Get well.

Thank you. It's going to be hard (he's my baby!) but I think it will be best for him.

I know everyone has already said it like 10000X, but I wish you the best of luck finding the right person for Denny! And I wish you a speedy recovery too!

So you can't do ANY kind of riding? Not even if it is just walking around on him?

No, the squatting position strains my knee too much. Maybe if I had a western saddle or rode very lightly bareback... but if anything were to happen and I had to dismount in a hurry, my healthcare professionals wouldn't be too happy.
