I am Mary Hanson, Ithaca NE, which is north of Lincoln, west of Omaha. I work for the National Park Service as a trail specialist. Sounds good, but I spend a lot of time at a desk or in a car. My work gets in the way and sometimes I wimp out to due weather, but I am making a real New Year’s resolution to ride my horses more!
My mares are RG Prairie Sunset and Mary Mels Rosebud. They are very different, but I like them both and plan to ride them equal time. Sunny is an opinionated, slightly lazy Morgan mare, but she is my baby. She is a big trotter for being a little thing (14h 1”). Once in shape, she is like a little sports car. Rosey is a gaited Morgan mare, very sweet, but is a bit of a coward. She is best going straight down the road. Of course they both improve immensely with riding, hence and another reason to ride more.
Both are going to be bred this year so when they are busy I will steal my husband horse, Tate. He is Rosey’s 4 yr. old colt. The only bad thing I can say on him, it he is too tall. Still he has the biggest walk and can cover lots of distance fast.
