Anything Goes / Re: Horse riding again
« on: May 21, 2017, 01:10:17 PM »
What a lovely horse!  It sounds like you had a great experience.
When I used to take dressage lessons, I always had to fight the ponies to TRY to get them to hug the walls instead of cutting corners.  It's funny what personality can do!
Your comments have me curious as to what your bad experience was.  I can definitely see how that could ruin things.

I'm excited because I am supposed to go on an all day ride (haven't done that in YEARS) on Saturday as part of my belated bachlorette/hen party (since we only had a little over 2 months to plan and a party just never lined up with everyone's schedules).  Thankfully, it will be on horses I've ridden before as it is up at my friend's new home (same place/horses as the photo I shared).

I don't doubt that one bit!  Everything seemed to fall into place so easily and so perfectly.  I'm just sure she was up there pulling strings to make it happen.  :)

Thank you!
She's the only person I've met with the name, but after her funeral, people have come out of the woodwork stating that they know a person/are related to someone with that name.  It's strange!
