Re: RC: "Karen J. Zelinsky" - Horse/ Mouse Pad

Hi Karen,

Happy Birthday, and you are SO right!  As one who's passed the half
century mark, we deserve  some kind of award for hanging in there! 
Doesn't enddurance riding give you some of the "tools" to do these
miles, though?  Many's the time I have had "plan b or c or??" just as we
do with endurance riding, or took a deep breath  and said "I CAN do
this" or just plain started over, just like I learned when endurance
riding.  I think it should be offered as a life class and  we could get
college units for it!

How appropriate to ask WHERE are the vets or crews to help out?  I have
often needed them, and still do!  It really is a "Philosophy of life"
and teaches us more than riding skills and horse care.  It   has helped
me through many hard times, and I hope will continue to do so.

What a thoughtful friend!  She really knew WHERE your heart was, AND has
a sense of humor to boot!  Lucky you, and keep passing the "vet checks"
of life!Thanks for sharing with us.
