Hello From Washington!

I have been a part of this forum for almost 4 years but have just recently started coming back around and surfing thru it again. For the past year, I havent had access to a computer and wasnt able to do much on my phone... So, to all my old friends still on here, IM BACK!!!!! and to all the new friends I hope to make, my name is Kara and I broke my back almost 4 years ago but never let that stop me from continuing to enjoy my passion for horses. I took a year or more off from my horses and have been riding regularly for the past year working with my horses as well as training other horses :-) I hop that my story inspires people on here and not make them think Im crazy ;-)


  • Dodgegirl89:

    Welcome back. Glad to hear that your recovery has enabled you to live life.

    When I read the title to your post I thought it had something to do with THE Washington and etc. We can't discuss politics on here, but I was interested in what you had to say. Good to know that it was related to "reality" and it is good news.

    My wife has always loved horses. I always have liked the smell of horses, and their biodegradable byproduct for the garden. Incidentally, horses are just like cocaine - very expensive and very addictive. I am a previous horse owner.

    Continue to live life to its fullest for those of us who must sit on the fence.

  • Hi Kara, I'm glad your back!
