    Old Dogs CAN Learn New Tricks

    Last Spring my horse & I took a dump in Rocky River... The water was too high and our partnership too new for that challenge; but, we do stupid things. I felt Diamond Girl falling and tried to jump off clear of her. I wound up under water and watching her hooves coming down in front of me. I curled...

    Thanks to God and Troxel

    On a beautiful Saturday morning I mounted my mother's thoroughbred, trained for 10 years in dressage. A mowing machine passed us on adjoining property and my horse spooked and bucked me straight in the air. I fell like an arrow, my feet directly over my head and landed on my head, rolled out of the way of the horse...
