Well it sure has been awhile since I wrote on this blog. Time has gone by so fast and so many things have happened. Where do I start.
The big thing was that I retired from the City at the end of 2016. Left to plan out the next stage in my life. In May 2017 my Mother passed on at 103, just after her birthday. She did get to celebrate it at the Mandarin till the end. Not sure if I want to live to 103. Things seems to go downhill after 100 but I guess I will find out in the future.
So I have updated the website and renamed it Equestrian Coaching. I have been organizing some clinics and take the occasional student. I don't really teach riding but I want to help people get a better relationship with their horses. I enjoy playing with different horses and helping them get more confident in themselves and in humans.
I started working again as a school bus driver in September 2017. I drive special needs kids in a wheelchair bus. It is so different from driving public transit. I enjoy it and like the kids. It is nice to have some extra money as horses are expensive. Arwen injured herself in February and has been off for the last year. I am hoping she will be okay for the summer of 2018 but will have to see about that.
Since Arwen was off I leased another horse in October so I could ride. We are building our relationship but he does have some trust issues and just needs more playtime. So we are working on things. He is getting better and he now will come when I call most days Hopefully it will be every day soon :)
So now I have played catch up we will continue...........
