    I'm a Newbie

    Hi all. I'm a newbie from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I've been around horses most of my life but still a beginner in the saddle. Sadly I don't own a horse but a friend of mine has a mare I can work with. I'll be having gastric bypass surgery soon I hope. At my current weight I won't get on a horse. However that don't mean I can't be around them. I'm hoping after surgery I'll do more riding and do some showing someday.

    Hi yooperbug. I have a friend from Michigan but I'm not sure where abouts.
    Sometimes just being around horses is absolutely the best. They talk to you a lot more if you don't always interact to ride, I find.

    It will be awsome if you can ride after your surgery. I take it that gastric bypass is classed as elective surgery? How long is the waiting list?

    Where in the you.P. Are you from? I'm a fellow Yooper! However, I am currently living in North Carolina. My husband (Yooper as well) is in the Marine Corps.

    I'm from Michigamme! And I see your from near Ishpeming. I went to Westwood HS. There is a HIGHLY likely chance that I know you!

    Hi there,
    I am new to the board as well. Good luck with your surgery! I have had my fair share of differnet types of surgeries so I hope this will all go wonderfully for you.

    Right now my horse has some problems and he is not ready to have a rider on his back. I also had a neck surgery last September and have not been cleared to ride yet.

    I too have been around horses all my life and done lots of training of other peoples horses and riding for them in 3 day, but it has been a while for me to be with my own horse...
    Always good to go slow...
    Good luck and welcome!
