There are plenty of equine websites out there but
OUR focus is on women - a bit older & wiser
- yet still in the saddle and determined to stay there!
What do we do?
We live in New River, Arizona and ride the
trails. The Tonto National Forest & surrounding Sonora
Desert is not for the meek. If we can
still get out there on a regular basis, maybe we can encourage others to live their
horse dreams too
So what does this site offer?
Our unique perspective - what
we know, what works, some how to's and advise, a couple of
stories, and whatever else we think is important. You know women,
we always change our minds! Most of all, we want to
share our love with

THIS IS HOW WE
KEEP OUR GROUP ACTIVE
s Make your ride dates as if you were making an important
APPOINTMENT Include the date, time, meeting
place & plan your ride route. Make it a strictly kept,
non-negotiable part of your weekly schedule
then DO it !
s Get a group of at least 2-6 friends / riders to make the
same APPOINTMENT. That way, if one or more
can't make it, someone DOES go ride.
Knowing that part of your group IS riding every week is a huge
s Ride using the Universal Rule of Trail Riding.
That means that the group rides at the level of the
LEAST skilled rider in the group.
s Safety first - in all aspects of riding. The goal is to
KEEP riding so injuries to humans and
horses are to be painstakingly avoided. While feelings can be
hurt, they mend much quicker than broken body parts.
