Early Days

The 2016 Recap

Well the second half of 2016 passed by without any blogging. Such is life sometimes, but here’s the summary:

My husband was severely injured on the job, and I became a medical secretary/chauffeur/caretaker. He is still recovering, albeit slowly.

I have a new job – and it’s the best job ever! I am working at the barn for my trainer.  =)   What started as an exchange of lessons for help turned into a real opportunity as her business expanded.

Keeping it colorful on a client horse, and cheesin’ with the boss at a show!

I also help retrain and rehome ex-racehorses for the Thoroughbred Rehab Center. West Coast friends: I’m your new hookup for some really talented horses!

First ride on this mare – she was the first to get adopted from our group!

Hannah is doing wonderfully. She continues to be sweet and patient but also game and joyful. We both had a blast in our second horse trial together last fall. We have become a really good team.
