Hi, just starting a blog about a horse we're looking at. My daughter and I went to see him on Saturday. I haven't been horse-shopping since 1993! Wow! (Backtrack here: Our current horse, my daughter had been taking lessons for a few months, ... Read more

Well, thank goodness we've progressed since the last blog. After about 6 weeks, and a vacation that took it a little longer, I was back to being able to ride without pain and Taz was able to be ridden at more than a walk and small trots. I kep... Read more

I had a fun time at my second USDF show last weekend. This time I rode a friend's horse (a few weeks ago I rode one of my trainer's horses successfully). It was the mare's first time off the farm to a show, and she was a bit nervous, but by ge... Read more

Well, I finally opened my Walking Away the Pounds DVD I bought a few months ago. I started with the 20 minute "1 mile strength walk." It was quite painless, and I felt so good about myself for doing it. Then, I came home from riding and h... Read more
What am I doing?

I have been moping along, not doing much of anything to really lose these last 5 lbs. Down a few, slowly back up. I eat in front of the tv and in front of the computer. I know those are bad things. I'm not exercising as much, hardly even walk... Read more
