The big bounce

Well, I am now officially back in horses. Have all of the bruises to prove it. Got on Carmel last night. Everything was cool for about 15 minutes, then all hell broke loose. Now remember, I have not been on a horse for about 40 years. I found out I don't bounce as well anymore being 56 years old. Anyway,, I stayed with him for the first several bucks, then I bit the dust. Both of my arms are bruised. My left butt check is bruised, my left thigh, and my right foot is twice as big as it should be. Guess he needs more work

Oh, my gosh!! Be careful. You're right... as we get older, we don't bounce as well, and we also don't recover as well. OUCH!

I know! I used to ride all of the time. But in the last 38 years, I have only been on 2 other horses, and that was only for a short ride. So, I am starting all over. I see you are new here also. I am Kat from Iowa. We live on a farm in Iowa. Complete with cattle, goats, chickens, geese, dogs, cats, and now 2 gorgeous horses.

Hi Kat. I'm Carol. We have our own little "farm" here. Ha

We have horses, dogs, cats and a pot-bellied pig. We will be moving to TX next year and have some acreage, where we can add more to our menagerie if we like. Could be trouble.
