Hope you find some buddies soon. I do have riding buddies but sometimes they can't go when I can go. It takes time to cultivate people that you WANT to ride with too!

My hubby rides with me but mostly when we are riding with a group. We don't often go just us two. He just had surgery on his eyes so he can't ride for awhile but hopefully will be able to in 2 weeks.

i get along with most people, so its not too difficult :). I talk to everyone. wow did he have lasik? My mom did and it is awesome.

my best friend is my arabian. People always tell me that he's the calmest horse they've ever seen. i tell them he's an arabian. and they are surprised :)

No, he had cataract surgery. He had one eye done a month ago and then one done last Thursday. He had some kind of fast growing "aggressive" as they labeled it, cataracts and all of a sudden pretty much, he couldn't see the golf ball! OMG for a golfer that is just the pits.

I had PKR done on my eyes (similar to lasik) about 5 years ago - nice to be able to see without contacts!!!

As for the developing of friends - I didn't really know any "horsey trail riding" people when I got back into horses. I would go up and ride with the lady I bought my horse from. I moved to the barn I am at now and they mostly showed or did dressage. About 6 months later they went on a trail ride with some people they knew and the next month I went. Found a cousin who is now my riding buddy (never know where a cousin will pop up! I don't know who was more surprised...me or her!) and a bunch of friends in a trail riding club. We ride together all the time now. From the time I bought the horse til then was 9 months so it took awhile.

See if there is a Cowboy Church in your area (the group I ride with is lead by the pastor of that but the group itself is not with the CCC) and they generally are going on trail rides, putting on play days and anyone can join in.

Happy Trails hopefully in the near future!!

wow he mustve been miserable! I am glad he will get better. :) Yeah my mom was pretty satisfied with the lazer surgery too. I have bumped into cousins a couple of times, too. its a small world haha. I used to go to Open Range in Whitney and then we moved. So the closest one to me now is Bar Cross. I didnt know Burleson had a cowboy church. I will have to check into it and maybe i will go this sunday! Thanks lots!

my best friend is my arabian. People always tell me that he's the calmest horse they've ever seen. i tell them he's an arabian. and they are surprised :)

Your welcome. I am not a member of that church but I have on occasion gone to Kenny's church (he is the guy who heads up our trail rides) and am good friends with him. I bought Biscuit from him! Hubby and I have on occasion gone to the CCC in Orange about 30 miles from here and it was nice but I am a member of another denomination.

There were all very nice people and at the Orange church I did know some of the members - had rode with them before! Let me know how it goes!!
