Horses help to Heal 2/8/09 12:43 PM

The horses have been a huge help for my MS.  Riding again.  Movement. I haven't ridding in some 15 years but it's coming back. And for once since my illness attacked me I feel as if I can do something useful. Not just brain work but really useful for me and the animals.  I'm feeling a bit MS-ie lately but its because I'm not taking the best care of myself.  Yesterday was a very emotional day for me.  Among  things not so pleasant I was asked to ride a young quarter horse coming down from Oregon. She just needs mileage in a cutting saddle.  I can do that.  Want to do that.  The horses need to be a part of my life right now. Along with my friends and family. Work and school.  I have a full plate.  The other parts of my life can chill for awhile.  Must get to school work - just a note to remind you MSers that it's OK to take a chill break.  We need them. We deserve them.
