Living in Hawaii has been a dream of mine since the first time I set foot on these islands - way back in 1969! After several annual trips, I finally packed up my stuff and made the move in October 2004. I'm forever grateful to the folks who helped get me here!! My journey is in fond memory of all of them - There isn't a day that goes by that I don't stand in awe of these beautiful islands - and the wonder of our planet --

My Goals:
I am a former avid equestrian - and a senior....both of those are compelling reasons to become a spark! Right now, horsemanship is on hold because of orthopedic problems - but all the more reason to become a spark! Less weight will make things a lot easier!!

My Program:
Right now, I'm concentrating on eating right and doing some strength training.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
My Adult Equestrian life:
It all started back in 1999. My daughter and I had gone on a trail ride in
Hawaii while we were on vacation. My daughter, then 26 years old, decided
that she liked horseback riding. I told her that if she wanted to do more, we
should take lessons - "horses, after all, are not cars", I cautioned.
Additionally, it had been years - more than 30 of 'em - since I had done
any serious horseback riding - and I certainly could use a refresher course!

That same Christmas, I had a gift certificate to a local schooling barn
presented to me for a trial riding lesson.

One time back in that arena - and the rest is history! Since then I have
owned three horses, leased five more, managed a barn or two. helped a friend with light training for several of her steeds - and - well
- have essentially become addicted all over again to my childhood passion
- horsemanship!! Right now on hold - but there's hope.

I hope

    Are you doing any better? If so, nice job! If not, let's do it today. I need someone to be accountable to. My weight is up 14 pounds from a year ago and I need to get it back off. How's your leg?
