Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, January 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Me on a horse!!! FINALLY!!!
This is me yesterday on Riley, my lesson horse, who is the MOST patient and calm horse I've ever seen! Nothing bothers him and he yields nicely to leg pressure! He has kids climbing all over him for lessons, too, so he's pretty mellow about everything! My legs felt good yesterday and didn't hurt at all. I practiced dismounting and when I dismounted at the end of my lesson, all went well! (((BIG SMILE))) I practiced it over and over until my legs knew where to go and what to do! (I have nerve damage in my back which effects my legs and balance...)
