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)

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.
