The garbage has been lifted,

Since we no longer raise Miniature
Horses, I decided it was time to change the
name of the ranch. I didn't really
need to have a ranch name, but wanted to
keep certain parts of my web site, so needed
to come up with a new domain name.
What better name than "The Money Pit Ranch"
after all the years of pouring good money
after bad into this place and these animals!
16 years of raising sweet, loving, beautiful
Miniature Horse foals (and loving every
moment of it!), we have only one mini mare
left here as a pet.
Our only other "farm animals"
are a pair of riding horses.
We have "gone gaited", due to the
beautiful smooth ride they offer! I
have been experiencing back pain for several
years now, and after riding these
"easy-gaited" horses and the SMOOOOOTH ride
they offer, I would NEVER go back to having
to ride the trot of a regular horse again!

you enjoy your cyber-visit, but before we begin,
let's just get a couple things straight...
RULES for Old Horse Women
- We DO NOT need
to show up with our hair combed, make up
on and wearing a clean shirt.
groaning and complaining about aching
muscles is perfectly acceptable, as is
taking Motrin (or something stronger)
prior to a ride.
- Helping someone
on or off the horse does not mean the
rider is an invalid. It only means the
horse got taller overnight.
- No one will
comment about how big someone's butt
looks in a saddle.
- When a horse is
acting up we will accept that the horse
is just having a bad hair day and it is
not the rider's fault.
- Mentioning it
is too hot, too dry, too humid, too wet,
too buggy, etc., is considered self
expression, not whining.
- We will
acknowledge that horses are very strange
animals and sometimes for no reason at
all we fall off of them. If this happens
to any rider the other riders will
ascertain that the person is okay and
then not mention the incident to another
living soul, especially husbands and
- We will
acknowledge, without apology, that
riding more than 6 hours increases our
grumpy level far more than any ego
benefits we may get from riding longer.
- Looking at my
bouncing fat is NOT an acceptable way of
determining if I have a good seat. My
fat always bounces, thank you. It is
cushion I carry in case I fall off.
- No OTD (Older
Than Dirt) rider shall be asked "What's
your discipline?", "Are you showing next
weekend?" or "What level are you"?
Answers like "I am totally
undisciplined", "I showed up today;
isn't that enough?", and "Actually I
tend to list a bit to the left" will be
acceptable should anyone younger than
dirt ask those ridiculous questions.
And never forget to...
road less traveled sometimes,
