I love this picture! Riding side saddle on the hippo shouldn't be too dangerous. ;)

I haven't made a resolution in many a long year.

2008 was a year of ups and downs healthwise and other wise, but all in all we feel it was a good year. We've had much worse! So we feel blessed and hope '09 goes as well as '08.

Happy New Year Julie!

All the best in 2009!

Happy New Year Julie. I hope yours is better also, but even with all that has happened since Dec.26th of 2007 to Dec 26th of this year, I still have many Blessings to be thankful for. I just hope this year will be better for all.
My New Years Resolution is to finish organizing and staying positive and plenty of smiles. When I did ride a horse, it was always side saddle, that way if I got scared, I could just jump off. Just wasn't my thing, but I do love watching others ride them. Big Hugs, Pat

Oh My gosh! This picture is so cute and funny. I've never ridden side saddle and can't imagine how to guide a horse from just one side! How do you do lead changes? or just nudge them over just a bit? I can't wait till you learn so you can let us all know how it's done. I know you'll do great and look so elegant, too!!
Hope your New Year is filled with many blessings!
Patricia :o)

PS: I don't really do resolutions. They're more like goals so that I know I've accomplished something by the end of the year.

What's really funny is that my New Year's Resolution, as posted on COTH a few days beforehand, was:

"FIND.

A.

NEW.

HORSE."

First thing that happened on New Year's Day? He found me!
