Oh the pain …

Went on a fast ride with four endurance riders today.  Trophy had a lot more to give than I did.  I’m crippled at this point.  I think Trophy may feel a lot better than I do. Here’s a happy photo: Here’s me trying to keep Trophy trotting.  Trophy wants to run and run and run […]

Back in the groove

Okay, back to reality: there’s nothing I can do about my current lack of earning power.  All I can do is to learn to live even more frugally than we have been.  As I was lying in bed this morning, I thought to myself, I have to get up and get ready to go to […]

A good ride …

Went with my friend Jenn on a fantastic ride yesterday afternoon.  We road at a private estate in Gaston County.  It was absolutely gorgeous.  I could have ridden there all day … if my body would have held up.  Trophy moves on like a locomotive!!!  He’s a great horse, absolutely perfect for my needs right […]
