    Hi! I'm new

    Hi! I'm IronRockRanch and I want to tell you a little about my self.

    I am from Texas & I got started later in life with horses. Early 50's. I like to trail ride the most. We (my husband & I) go on several rides a year mostly on week ends. Once we went on a ride that was 7 days long. For me that is too long, your in the saddle for 16 - 18 hrs a day. I have 4 horses one of which is pasture art. He came down with EPM 2 years ago that left him too weak to ride. Of my 4 horses two are quarter horse, one is an appaloosa and one is unknown. Now you have my whole equine history. (whoo hoo)

    Hello that is a really long trail ride but I think it would be cool but I would be hurting after from all of the time in the saddle

    Hi there! Welcome! My dad was from Texas! He is the one who got me into horses! (Although I was born loving them. )

    I'm 51, so we're pretty close. I just have the one horse in my sig. A 5 yr. Old brown tobiano paint, mostly qh mare. We ride trail. Although, usually it's just a few hours... I don't think I would enjoy being in the saddle THAT long... I know my joints wouldn't!

    Long ride

    Thanks for saying hello and for knowing some else is my age. Yes that was a long ride. That is why we only did it once. I too am too old. I'm good for about 4 -5 hrs then I need a brake. I'm at work so I need to get to it.
