Joy on the Ranch

As a child, Joy dreamed of having a horse, and finally, at the age 58 she is living her dream.

In veterinary school, she never considered pursuing equine medicine. Being on one end of a syringe with a 1200 pound animal on the other was not her idea of a nice career.

In her late 40s, she went on a riding vacation in Ireland and became forever hooked. After many lessons, she finally purchased her first horse and discovered, as most novice horse owners do, that they come with their own set of issues.

She soon discovered that owning a horse was not an easy undertaking, but enjoyed the challenges. Now in her 60s, she has learned much more than just riding skills, developing courage and physical agility beyond what she ever imagined possible.
