I think part of my mid-life re-evaluation (I don’t call it a crisis) is that I have decided to pursue dreams that I thought were long ago dead. Part of my motivation is that my teenagers are ‘into’ horses, and it is a way for us to connect. I never imagined how hard it would be to keep in touch with your kids when they hit puberty!
Long story short, we have begun a horse aquistion program at our house, and this weekend we doubled the anty. My 13 yo daughter has a pony and a colt that is 6mo. My 17yo son has a TWH, and this weekend I purchased 2 Arabians for me (I’ll possibly share one with my 15yo son.) AND we also brought home one for my 19yo daughter who doesn’t live with us anymore but is close by.
The crazy part comes in because we have our house on the market and are moving to Colorado. If that isn’t enough, the horses are young and untrained - AND they are rescues from a bad situation so they are having to learn to trust people again. But I am already having fun. I can’t wait until the day when I can just hop on bareback and bridless like Pat Parelli and ride with the wind in my hair. We are avid Parelli fans, and two of my children are aspiring Parelli professionals. My second oldest daughter (18) is traveling and learning with her instructors. What I wouldn’t give to have been able to do that when I was her age.
When I get some pictures loaded onto the computer, I’ll post some. They are beautiful!
