I didn’t get “horse fever” until I was 37 with an 8-year-old Quarter horse mare, Missy.  She packed me around on trail rides, we had great adventures in the Renaissance Fairs and just about any “horsing” around.   When Missy had a 2 year lay up, I acquired an Arabian mare, Pretty Girl.  PG introduced me to Dressage and I was hooked.  I then fell in love with Weltino, a Weltrum Hannoverian gelding at the age of 3 and I was in my late 40’s.  It was quite a journey this Dressage learning how to ride and train at the same time.  Years of many lessons with many clinicians.  I also took on Big Al to help me with PSG but Weltino soon went past both of us and he took me to Intermediate I.  When he passed away, I thought I would never ride again.  My friends in Germany sent me a wonderful young Hannoverian gelding, Frontman affectionately called Fin.  However, the couple of years not riding, Fin being an exuberant 5-year-old youngster, oh and let’s not mention I am now considered “old”, I had to send him off to Pony Camp.  I hope to get him back soon but in the meantime, I am riding a very energetic mare at the nice age of 17, Rosie.  Love her to pieces too.  Guess the “horse fever” will never go away….
