Good on ya lady! I like to hear about other "experienced in life" people that haven't given in to the sitting around waiting to kick the bucket syndrome. I'm 65 and have lived my whole life, so far at least, with that old Chinese curse,"May you have an interesting life". I'm living with a good part of my insides missing and someone else's liver, but I'm living, and with the attitude that every day above ground is a good day. I don't own or have access to a horse either. My brother, the cattle baron, raises show cattle, and has a place that I could possibly keep a horse on, but I'd have to build a corral and some kind of shelter for the horse. The initial investment would be way WAY over my meager Social Security income. Right now I'm looking to find a riding school and learn how to ride and speak horse on their horses. Goodluck with your search and keep on keepin' on.
