Exciting News!!

Alright people, more updates. Maddy and I really bonded tonight. She finally stopped refusing the crossties and is doing amazing with her natural horsemanship. Not only that but, I TROTTED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 8 MONTHS!!! I loved every second of it. My instructor had said I was a long time away from trotting, late November maybe, but I defied the odds again :) I also am doing the two point position better than before my diagnosis, and can balance with no hands at a walk :) Great day today!

I was so sure I posted on here before, apparently not.

Anyway, I am so happy for you, I have two women very close to me battling cancer right now, and they're just as strong as you are.

Congratulations on your success! Just remember to take it slow if you dont feel well :) the horse is there with you every step of the way

So great to hear you progress. Glad you doing well. Almost done with the chemo -yeah!

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

My sister in law is an Oncology nurse, and my husband lost his mom to multiple cancers when he was 9. So hearing of someone beating that nasty thing is SO wonderful! You look fantastic and your horse is STUNNING!

Finally Jumped!

Alright, so I got back from chemo yesterday and of course, I had to go see Maddy today! Towards the end of our ride i trotted her some, and finally jumped!! It was AWESOME! My instructor was really impressed with me :)
I tried to get a picture to work but unfortunately the camera decided to give me a panic attack XD
