At 39 Patty realized no one was going to buy her a horse, so she bought one for herself.

At 50 she started learning to drive carriages and trained her own Percheron, Steele by herself. Steele weighs a ton.

At 58 she bought her first horse bow & is now setting up a mounted archery course on her farm.

Be like Patty.

Any resources on caring for an equine and learning to drive? You're talking my dream here.

I turned 50 my last birthday. Reading Patty's story, I guess I can't use the excuse I'm too old...for anything. Thank you for sharing, Jenna! What a boost for us older gals. 😊
