Magggie May

This is Maggie May. I love her , she is a good horse and she scares me a little. I have had horses since Erin was in the 4th grade (she will be a senior this year). Erin was the rider in the family and she did 4H and High School Equestrian team. She started with a horse named Sally but out grew her. Maggie was supposed to be Erin's new horse when she was a freshman, but Erin and Maggie butt heads, the are a lot alike, headstrong, sure of themselves, convinced that their way is the right way, beautiful and young. Maggie is now my horse, she is not my only horse I also have Maverick, but I will talk about him another day. Maggie has had a few years to grow up since Erin first bought her , and I believe that she has grown into a great horse, but that doesn't mean she doesn't scare me. I came to horses later in life and didn't start riding until I was forty. I have had a few set backs , but believe that Maggie and I will have a great partnership. I have been promising myself for two years that I would ride her, but I have not made it a priority, and let my fear stand in my way. Wednesday I am taking a riding lesson on Maggie, and I am looking forward to it. I believe that doing something that scares me is a good way to stretch myself, and I want horses to be a part of my life and refuse to be cowed. Wish me luck. What do you do that scares you?

You inspire me! You were never afraid to try new things, thanks for always encouraging me to do the same.
