Hey ladies (and even men), read "I RIDE"

This letter/poem was forwarded to me by one of our members; it's a reminder of why you ladies do what you do, and a lot of it applies to us men too.


I ride. That seems like such a simple statement. However as many women who ride know, it is really a complicated matter. It has to do with power and empowerment. Being able to do things you might have once considered out of reach or ability. I have considered this as I shovel manure, fill water barrels in the… Continue

Well, Christmas is barrelling down on us like a freight train and I am not ready!!! My shopping got put on hold the last couple of paychecks due to 2 vehicles having to go into the shop.

Hi all well I haven't been here for awhile but anyway. I've got a request. I'm looking for a nice, quiet, gentle, sweet tempered gaited horse. Maybe a TWH. I am especially looking for a gelding. I am looking for something that is proven on the trails, road riding, saddle club shows, etc. One that is maybe a little older that you would like to find a good home for. I don't have a lot of money to spend but I would be willing to give it a good, forever home, with lots to eat and he wouldn't be… Continue

Thanks for your reply !! I have been so happy with this little mare except for this one thing!! Your advice is sound and makes sense. But, you know the 'waiting is the hardest part". It reassures me that someone else has gone through this too. I do ride on my own on occasion, but only in areas I know well where I'll run into folks I know also!!
Happy riding !!
