My name is Winnie and I am writing to you from Denmark.
Sorry, but I'm old - allready in my 40's. (time is running!)
I am a single Mum to two grown up sons.
I have had many horses for many years (untill 2003) and I went for Showjumping, dressage and 3 day event.
I have also worked a lot with youngsters.
I've been a riding instructor in Denmark for many years (also one year in the UK)
But after a divorce in 2003 I sold the horses and in 2004 I got lymph cancer - that suddenly changed my whole life radically.
Going from being a very active person for so many years, - my body totally slowed down.
But I was lucky - it's gone! The chemo therapie worked against all odds and now I just have to live with the annoying side effects.
But I got bored, tired of being tired and I missed the horses so terrible!
My energy was so small - so in 2005 I started to teach myself how to paint horses and today I live between horsepaintings, and I love it!!!
I needed to create many other different things, - to feel alive, to join the World - and I have been doing that ever since.
That was my way to get back on track, not the same track, but a new life related with horses.
So yes, may be I should be pleased about my "old" age - instead of being sorry!
