    Well I do not have an eye problem myself, but I see tons of people a day that do. It's my job. I'm an optometrist. (The only smiley with glasses!)

    Can't say I've ever told a patient they couldn't ride. Instead, I usually end up taking too much time with them because we're yacking about our horses!

    I recall reading a story about a blind barrel racer. Her parents/friends used to stand at each barrel and bang on it, so she could hear it and know which direction to steer her horse. Now, she wears an earpiece and someone directs her through a microphone. Amazingly brave!

    Bless you for finding a way to give yourself a bit of freedom. No better way that I can think of then to have a trusted mount, be your eyes. I myself have vision problems but not that bad. I still have sight in both eyes but... it isn't like it used to be. I hope you have many happy trailrides. :)
