Hi, I'm Ev. I'm training to become a horsewoman. These are my adventures and misadventures. I'm green as hell, but so far, so good. I'm now learning from Bo (and sometimes his wife DeDe) at D&D Ranch in Pope Valley. I am extremely lucky to have this opportunity, I feel quite blessed, and I feel that they, and horses, have really turned my life around.
Solomon is my baby- a big old flea bitten grey Appendix gelding who is very kind and way too smart! I love him so very much. He is a rescue and was meant to be co-owned rehabbed, and maybe rehomed to a good home. He turned out to be over 25 years old with injuries that ultimately do not make him riding sound, so he is retired.

A little relapse

This morning I could barely get out of bed. Back is screaming. Stiff, sore, can barely dress myself.
I'm still going out to see Solomon. Hopefully the back will stop locking up. If not, Solomon will walk me out until I feel better.
I had a fall yesterday, while packing up that saddle I sold. Two days ago I was running in the meadow. I'm not going to let this stop me, I refuse.
Maybe I can ride Teddy Bear. If I can get onto her back, things will improve. A horse's back heals my back. The posture and the movement, it does something with my core, works it but makes it feel so good.
A year ago I would have despaired on a day like today. But not now.
Not now.

Now there are horses.
