Re: Senior gals with senior horses

Aww thanks, I think she's gorgeous too...but I'm biased. Here is a head shot of her: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v470/chenders100/Stella%20head%20shot_zpsol1xahjy.jpg I lucked out with her. After Raymond, my wish list was very specific and she checked off every box. I was a confirmed gelding p...

Re: Looking for Help Pricing a Mare

Holy moly! $7,500 American works out to close to $10K Canadian and I dunno anybody who would pay that for a 17yo 15.1 QH/draft cross. Sorry but here in southern Ontario a horse like that would be maybe around the $2-3K (Cdn) mark IF she is a really nice mover. But her size, her breeding and her age ...

Re: Senior gals with senior horses

Just revisiting this thread after a lonnnngggg absence. Still considering myself to be a senior (at 51) because the barn I'm boarding at now, I'm older than most of the *moms* who bring their kids out to ride heh heh ;) Long story short, my heart horse, Raymond, passed in January. Colic. I had start...

Re: Seniors...will you buy another when....

! Especially this section for us older riders. (And Chenders, even though you are a mere child! I am happy to have your input here). Thanks :D There isn't a forum for those of us who are too old to have the stamina of the 30-somethings anymore but too young to belong in the "seniors" cate...

Re: Seniors...will you buy another when....

When you feel your horse needs to be retired, will you buy another? Or, is this your last hurrah? I don't want to ride my horse anymore. Sound as he is, how long will that be true if I keep on riding him? I feel bad for him each time I tack up. I feel he has earned his retirement, and I do not feel...

Re: Tell us about YOU.

Re: Family get togethers, 2 hours late? A whine...

That is so rude and disrespectful to be two hours late for a planned dinner with a set start time. And especially when it is family (the people who are supposed to care the most about you) it is so much worse! I would be livid (how do you keep a meal warm for 2 extra hours??). I certainly would neve...

Re: "Experienced" Riders

Five more years for me and my guy to qualify. There's a good chance we will make it. I'm fairly sure I will still be able to ride in five years (albeit maybe usdf w/t :D ) Not sure how my horse will hold up. However, it is not a goal and I would not do it. It's actually a joke amonst the younger be...

Re: What ELSE do you do for fun?

So many creative people on here! And people with energy! I dunno how some of you find the time or the energy to do all the extra activities in addition to having horses. I fight the never-ended battle with my weight. Joined a gym back in May that has a women's only pool so I try to do aquafit at lea...

Re: Tell us about YOU.

This is a great thread! I pretty much only lurked on the UDBB but since there is a new board I decided that maybe I will post more. I'm 50, married, with two cats and my best boy, Raymond, who I have owned for over 8 years now. He's a 21yo Hanoverian/TB. Like others on here, we don't do much of anyt...
