waiting to hear for lessons
After a long break, I have started riding again. I had to convince the barn owner that I am safe riding, since I'm deaf and they've never dealt with that before. But one of their instructors knows sign language, as I do, so that helps. I also described how I manage lessons. For one, I don't take group lessons. Two, I ride close to the instructor to see what they want me to do, I repeat it to make sure it's correct, then I do it. Return to instructor, get more instructions. I keep an eye out on them, they wave to me if I mess up, and if I mess up I return to them immediately to see what my mistake it. So, yeah, wasted time going back and forth, but that's just how I can do it.

Plus, I've made the start of a friendship of a woman at the stable who has two horses. A black OTTB that is about 17h, and a Friesian cross as well. If I work my skills right, I might be able to help her out with her horses, as she rides 2-3 times a week.

x-posted to disabled_riders as well.

I just wish they'd email me back already!

NARHA National Convention Brochure
I feel loved. Please check out http://www.narha.org/PDFfiles/National/06Brochure.pdf
Within the winners circle image. To the top right is me with my all time favorite therapy horse Conn (the grey) and then the image on the middle left with the pony/ribbon is also me. :-D I feel loved. I just figured I should share because what are the chances that throughout all of North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (Affectionately known as NARHA to those of us who are acquainted) would choose two photos of me for their circle... I suppose I was photogenic at one time in my life. ;-) It's always things like this that remind me of how good I really do have it, being able to ride and experience horses the way that I have!

First Entry
Since I started the group, I may as well write the first post. I'm deaf, have RSDS, PTSD, RSIs in my wrists, disabling arthritis in my knees, I'm overweight, have asthma, and I'm starting back riding as soon as they can squeeze me in. I ride English, enjoy jumping, hope to compete in jumping and in dressage eventually. I'm going back because riding, despite the crappy knees, is an activity that I can do because it's pretty non-impact for me, and most importantly, it makes me happy in a way that other hobbies can't. I'll be able to write more once I have actually started, but this is a little bit of me, starting something at a point in my life that could be better, and that I'm actively working to make better.
