Today, the 5’ 9” woman, now in her fifties, weighs 140 pounds but, just a year and half ago, she weighed close to 260 pounds! She was admittedly a compulsive eater who ate fast food for lunch every day and just couldn’t quit with one sweet. (I can understand that!)
She grew up a horse lover and as a young girl she spent her time riding horses, mules and even driving teams of ponies. At one point, she even lied about her age so she could harness race. At home, she had a horse and like most horse loving young girls, she spent most of her free time riding. After high school, she sold her horse, went to work and moved on to other things. Nevertheless, she kept her saddle and knew that someday she would get back into horses and riding.
Even with Asthma and difficulty breathing, this woman has only missed walking a handful of times. A little over a year ago, she could not even picture herself ever riding a horse. Today, she is actively looking for a new horse. Here is a lady who, simply made a choice and, succeeded one day at a time, one step at a time. Her story is amazing and is just one example of the all grit...no quit philosophy that is a Cowgirl's Promise.
