Got it! Thanks dream catcher. My goodness you guys know a few deafies.

I bet it gets pretty interesting going trail riding with them.

I'm usually riding almost backward watching my buddies face and eatting a lot of tree branches that i swear Lucy aims at.

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

Welcome to the forum! Lucy is super cute. :)

One of my ASL professors was Deaf and owns horses. We never got to really talking horses (I had her for ASL101 and well...I didn't know enough to say much more than "I have a horse too!" ) but she was all the time telling the class about shows she went to and such.

Fabio - 13 year old Arabian/Lipizzan gelding
Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat

Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Howdy and welcome to the forum Cassy! I don't know any deaf folks around here, but I live in a rather unpopulated area so there just not many people in general.

Lucy looks like an absolute doll

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Welcome! :)

My last BO is legally deaf, and one of her good friends who rides and drives is deaf and has a cochlear. Neither of them signed since they both have some hearing.

Oh wow I'm surprised at how many of you know deaf people with horses.
My barn owner is losing her hearing and I taught her the abcs and little signs. We have our own home signs when she gives me lessons and she really can pitch her voice (think drill sergeant).
Feeling really welcomed
