Me, on Libby

I leave my right foot out of the stirrup, in case I have to make a quick dismount. With the long weekend coming up, I intend to get the grandson on her a time or two. He's braver than I am. She hasn't done a single thing to make me wary of her, I'm just old and cowardly... and I break easily.

She gets a bite of feed when we're done.

You and Libbie are looking GOOD! I know what you mean about being cowardly and breaking easily!! ha! I have my Morgan in for some training, tune up, and I have to go ride him in front of the trainer and I hate cantering now as I am afraid I will fall off if he stumbles or something! Buddy always has been clumsy so I think I lost my courage to canter due to that!
Great that you got a Dyson, I have been drooling over them for some time!
Thanks for the nice comment about Buddy and the foundering. It has sure been a battle!

She's lovely, Donna. Did you happen to read about my less than graceful dismount off from Sunny a couple weeks ago? That right foot not in the stirrup didn't help a bit and I'm still suffering some pain in my ankle... Be careful!

looking great!

Im 38 yo, but as I get older, I am not near as brave (stupid) or flexible as I once was.....

I know what you mean about breaking as we get old! I know as I age, I want to ride a broke mount, I sure will not climb on one that I know is going to break in half! I am getting too old for that. About 6 months ago, I was riding my mare bareback (which I do all the time) and we had been riding about 20 minutes, all of a sudden she ducks her head and off we go. I was thinking, what in the world? Anyway, I rode her for a couple of jumps and then decided I should exit before this gets ugly, so I exited to the right. I layed on the ground for a few mintues, then got up and decided to investigate what the problem was. Well, back where she started bucking was about 6-8 wasps hoovering on the ground, I am assuming some got under her tail or bite her causing the problem. Because she is not one to buck. Anyway, long story, longer the next couple of days I felt the effects of it! Anyway, I just wanted to share one of my horse stories with you! By the way, you look great! She is pretty. I do not care what people say about mares I love mine! Have a great and blessed day!
