A deaf rider here.

Hello! I've been lurking on horse forum for quite a while. Gained a lot of good knowledge and had lots of good laughs at the forums antics.

I'm completely deaf. I have a spoiled rotten in a good way chestnut thoroughbred, Lucy Maud.

Yes I do lip read and sign American Sign Language. I wear a hearing aid as well.

I was wondering if you know other deaf people who rides? I can't seem to find anything beside therapic riding or deaf horses.

Working on figuring out how to post a picture hmm.

I had a girl who helped me out in my barn for a while and she was deaf. Read lips and wore 2 hearing aids (when she remembered, LOL!). She runs barrels and trains her own horses. I wish she still worked for me, she was awesome with the horses and just an absolute doll to be around. I took her to auctions and shows with me to keep me focussed and she always ended up my partner in crime. Unfortunately, she turned 20 and discovered a boy....the boy.....and she got married and moved away.

It's certainly not unheard of. There is a girl who pro rodeos and she is deaf as well.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

If you go to your photobucket account and "View Library", go to the picture you want and there's kind of a starburst looking thing in the upper right corner, hover over that with your mouse and a drop down menu will show up, click get links and then click on the Direct link. Come back here and click on the picture in the toolbar of the response window and paste your direct link in the space below where it says, "Please enter the URL of your image." and it should work for you.
