Thank you everyone. I'm thinking stress does a lot to a body. I think he's has been stressing more over the cancer thing..more than me even. Still no results. Just waiting for that phone call.
Kim, I did have a chance to ride back in the day! I loved it! I rode western saddle...of course. :p And, I loved loved riding one horse bare back up in the foothills here in Utah County. I really did find ways to ride from the time I was in high school into the 80's. So I have a lot of great memories of it. Riding along in a spring, in a corn field..which was probably a no no. Had my brother on the back while bare back riding when a deer jumped in front of us on a trail and just hopped along for a while. I kicked my gal into a trot, and we followed that deer for quite a while until it jumped a fence. This horse was my in-laws. So had a chance to ride often. Before then was from a gal in school. We went for some great rides then. She was happy to have me ride, she rode her horses in rodeos..barrel racing, so wanted them kept in shape. No problem! I was willing to help out with that!
Another friend had horses too. :p I remember one day we went, her dad was there trying to get her to ride their stallion. She didn't want to, he was pretty frisky all right! I said..I will! I hopped right up there. Off we went..lol. He did kick up his heels a couple of times, but he was just having fun..and so was I!
