Too beat up to ride,but still love horses

Hi all, just an old guy from San Antonio. I used to ride a bit before the spine issues caught up with me. I do get to spend time out at my friends place Indian Creek Farm LLC Spring Branch, Texas it is a beautiful equestrian center up around spring branch. I also sell tack online (not going to spam my own website, I run the same forum software on another site, spammers are evil).

Anyway, I plan to be here now and again. I especially like the photo section of members horses.

Welcome to the forum, Shop! Great to hear that although you cannot ride anymore, you still enjoy horses to the best of your ability!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

If you can't ride any longer, you might consider taking up driving. If I ever get too old and crippled to ride, that's my plan.

When you are on a budget, jumping in the suburban for a drive... I got a call from my friend at ICF, I get to spend all next week there shooting video of the trainers:), so I will be getting some behind the wheel time. She pays very well so gas will not be a problem ;)



Edited to add: oops sometimes the pain overrides my brain. "Driving" just went right over my head lol

If either of you do that though, please for the sake of your butt and teeth- GET A BUGGY WITH GOOD SHOCKS. My easy entry miniature horse buggy looks like a lovely little ride, but the second you hop in you know...this isn't going to be any leisurely ride in the park. I swear that I feel like my brains are being shaken out every time I drive Sour, and we're just doing a nice little walk or slow trot!
