Yes I think you will be the baby of the bunch, Pidge.. LOL Most likely you will totally outride half of us. ;) I am 56, have 2 sons, and 4 grandchildren ranges from 9 months to 11 1/2 yrs. I'm OLD. LOL And nope, age doesn't really matter when you are riding. It's all fun.

Age doesnt restrict your riding, it is more your physical condition...lol
I am 27 and have been riding with the lady that I got Misty from (helping her with her horses) and she will be 50 in May and she has out ridden me a few times!! I love that I can go and help her, but I wish I had someone to ride with here too. (That is why I am looking forward to this summer and getting to ride with you guys!!) This lady has even invited me to ride with her, on one of her horses, in one of the local parades. If I can spell it right it is called the Kolatchie, it is a celebration that is held the first weekend in May in Prague. It will be the first parade that I have ridden in and I think it will be fun. We are planning on dressing up the horses. I am going to send my camera with my family so they can take pics and I will post them in an album for you guys to see. Right now all I have are the pics of the horses that I have.

Well we did it! we found a stock trailer in our price range. We are supposed to go pick it up tomorrow around 5. It is pretty fugly looking, but nothing a good sanding and paint wouldnt fix. It is older, but when you dont have much $$ then you really cant be to picky. Now all I need to do is get the truck fixed and we will be good to go this summer. Even if I dont get the truck fixed, then I can always use my sisters truck!!
Im so excited...and I just cant hide it....lofl

I can assure you I am going to be talking and laughing and NOT trotting for even 1 mile at once. NOPE! I'm too old for that stuff. lol

I went for an eight mile ride Tuesday with the lady that I got Misty from. Misty did ok, she had a couple of spookie moments (one of which I dont blame her!) She had a fresian/draft cross stud that rushed his fence. He could of just stepped right over it if he really wanted, it was only two wires high!! She crosses over two one-lane wooden bridges (she was nervous going over the first one) and we went on a bridge that crossed OVER the interstate (she didnt much like that) and then we went UNDER the interstate and she had no problems with that. So all-in-all she did ok. I am real happy with the progress that she is making. I think she should be fine come this ride we are planning! My friend is planning on comming back over for another ride next week. The more I work with Misty the better we both get. I go help this lady exercise her horses and I get free pointers out of it, so my riding is getting better. I am glad that we came to the agreement that we did, so not only should Misty be ready this summer..so should I!!!!
