    I was You

    I started out at 48. I'm 67 now and I wrote a book about being a Seasoned Curvy Cowgirl starting with KERSPLAT and ending up a World Grand Champion and "wowing" just about anyone who ever saw me perform my bridleless freestyle act with my horse.

    Please read the book and know that there are awesome days ahead! Read the reviews!
    So much life you have yet to experience with horses!

    Older Riders - DO It!

    I had a wonderful woman come into my barn and introduce herself with:

    My parents would never let me ride - too expensive and frivilous.
    My first husband told me I was a wife now, with responsibilities, and riding was not one of them. Then he died.
    My second husband told me I was too old to start riding - I should have started riding as a child. Then he died.
    So now I'm 72 and I want to ride!

    So I said "OK!" As an ex-marine, she had her fair share of old injuries, and at 72, she realized she was a little overweight and not as agile as she'd once been. But, this was a lifelong dream for her and, by all things good, she'd never given up on it.

    Within a year, she joined our show team, competed in a Novice Jack Benny series (the oldest competitor, and took reserve year end high point!), trail rode with everyone, and started jumping! Ultimately, she purchased one of my school horses. The horse was 25 years old, and while she was sound and healthy, I had been contemplating pulling her out of the school. Georgina bought her instead, telling me she reckoned they both had about the same number of years left in them!

    So I say: You go, Girl, GO!
