    hello from missouri!

    Hey everybody, im new here from kansas city. I've always been into horses. Never owned any, but have always enjoyed riding and working with them. Anyway, I just had my leg amputated below the knee last friday. I had been on crutches for 3 years. But I have spent the last several weeks before my surgery at a friends place watching him work with his colt.

    I've always believed people that say horses are great threrapy for people who have had things like this happen. So that all has a lot to do with whats led me here and sending me in the direction im going!

    Welcome. I'm in Joplin. I believe other members on the forum have spoken highly on many barns and riding instructors in your area.

    Hi from mid MO. Love Longview Horse Park. Great carriage driving club in KC.
    I know several accomplished equestrians that are below the knee leg amputees. One was my farrier for years. I hope that is not a deterrent from riding. Nice to meet you!

    longview is very nice, I live not too far from there actually. The amputation is not at all a deterrant to ride. Its actually motivating me to ride. I havent rode in years. But being around the horses lately really eased my stress from all the pain I was suffering thru. Horses are amazing medicine and I think riding will help in gaining coordination when I get my prosthetic.
