We want to hear from you – WARHorses

We are a community of like-minded, horse lovin’, women of age. Member Posts is dedicated to sharing YOUR stories. Everyone who spends time around horses has at least one good story to share (probably hundreds). Maybe a funny anecdote – that time my horse stopped in the middle of a lesson to watch a butterfly pass by. Perhaps you have a good piece of advice to share – don’t wrap the lead rope around your wrist. Perhaps you have a well-deserved brag – the first time  you got back on your horse after a bad fall. Maybe you recently moved to a new barn? Redid your pasture fencing and painted it purple? Have a neat trick to quickly roll leg wraps? An organic recipe to clean poop stains off grey horses – we definitely want to know about that! Whatever the topic – YOU have a story!

You are welcome to write your story and submit it for posting or if you ave an idea but need help, we’ll be happy to handle the writing. Email womenofageridinghorses@gmail.com.

We are “women of age”, we know stuff. Let’s share!
