    OH YOU GUYS !!!!!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TOO

    Hubby and I celebrate new year with horsey. I went for a ride wishing I will be there for another year.
    It is damn cold here and I feel frisky.

    Anyway, I had my greenbean canter for the first time, could feel his soooooo confortable canter. This is to fight the fact my cancer index is a bit up..My grand mother was baking bread when she had heart problems...I ride. Different times, different ways to fight !

    I hug you all for making me feel important to you !

    Bonne et heureuse année !

    Default Happy New Year

    I've got to chime in on this too - Happy New Year Leena! You are an inspiration. I'm so glad you are here, and look forward to wishing you a Happy 2010!!

    I still need to do my first under saddle canter on my green pony!! He is doing great walk/trot. We've even started doing some funny looking school figures. My serpentine was rater "Z" like.

    A happy post, thanks OP.

    Let's start a Leena fan club

    It is possible that Leena has no idea how big her fan club really is. I have told people who have never heard of COTH about Leena and they are fans, too. The list is HUGE

    I don't know what to say now...

    I renew all my rider licence for showing last week an even upgrade ! So I am sending my cancer a clear message here...That is going to be tough to knock me down !

    This is the way I always took this making clear plans and just focus to it, despite odds and doctors predictions. Despite what I am feeling too, physically speaking.

    What I have learned is: You don't control a horse, you just communicate with him. Breaking through all resistance of all kind has made me a real horse's energy sucker. I feel fortunate to live that opportunity to open my mind, loosen up my body and feel all this.

    I feel more than fortunate that I could speak, write on this board and get so much in return; you are fantastic ! This has been more positive that anyone could ever dream of.
    I am loosing my french here OMG !

    I read on Ultimate last year I guess about that woman rider who fought an ovarian cancer; unfortunately I don't recall her name but her story was so inspirationnal to me.

    Merci beaucoup de m'encourager et de me supporter autant ! (thanks very much to support me so much)

    Living forward !

    Leena I always love reading your stories, and viewing the pics and vids of your horses.

    I hope 2009 brings you much success and happiness. You really are an inspiration.

    I saw something on one of the news programs that people from Illinois, esp. the Chicago area say "Happy new years"(plural), where in other places they say "Happy new year"(singular). Interesting...

    Have many happy rides for many years to come!

    You guys are something !!!

    I wish myself as many rides as possible believe me !

    On feb 26th, I'll be celebrating my second year of fight. I take this humbly since I don't have chemios since last june, so about 6 months now and no remission.

    God bless my horses for this because I am still alive and cancer activity is low so far. I am on hormonal therapy; now I handle a weight watcher game every day since you can just become a big balloon with this stuff. I just gained 10 pounds.

    Nobody can imagine how this "Happy New year" means to me. I hug you all to support me in this battle !

    I love you all !
