Boomer Equestrians face many challenges as they age. Leaping into the saddle is no longer a reality. Boomers don't bounce when they hit the ground, as Roy Rogers said they smash. Theses realities don't lessen the love we have for horses and the desire to ride.
After a mild heart attack in June of 2015., I reviewed my bucket list. I wanted to go camping with my horse, but I knew that long hours in the saddle would be unfair to him. He was mutton withered and I had yet to find a saddle that was comfortable for him. I decided to get him the best saddle I could afford and I searched the internet. After a few weeks, I found Schleese Saddles 4Life and their most informative saddle fitting videos. There was a video of 93-year-old woman, Elsa, cantering on her horse. I was amazed! I thought if she can ride at her age there is no excuse for me. That video motivated me to find the perfect saddle for my horse, get fit and continue to ride. The Schleese Saddle company came to fit my horse and the next summer we went horse camping!
I created the Facebook group Boomer Equestrians so older riders can share tips and information to help keep their interactions with horses more safe and comfortable.

Steeped in the seamy underbelly of New York City, The Talk Show by Joe Wenke is a fast-paced and sarcastically funny thriller that examines how the forces of skepticism and negativity threaten our yearning for love, family and acceptance.
“The Talk Show” follows polarizing television personality Abraham Lincoln Jones (think gay-male outrageous version of Oprah), who finds himself disappointed in his medium’s inability to connet with viewers, and takes his show on the road. His “Emancipation Tour” puts him and pal Winthrop in the crosshairs of a racist, psychopathic killer -- let the dark, humorous thrills begin. -- Philadelphia Gay News

As the boomer generation reaches the age of retirement they are realizing that they are not quite ready to hang up their boots. In fact, this generation has gotten a second wind and they don't plan on spending it on the golf course - rather, they are becoming entrepreneurs and starting their own business.The reason for this growing trend amongst boomers is because most have found themselves out of work because of company lay offs or found that their savings had been washed away due to the recession. As a result, this generation of hardworking and ambitious individuals are putting themselves in the drivers seat of their own success. They are looking for a new career path that will provide a great work-life balance and an income that matched what they once earned.The need to support this entrepreneurial movement among baby boomers is massive. David could discuss who, what and where individuals should turn when pursuing this entrepreneurial path to business ownership.David has helped many boomers through the difficult process of starting a business and/or buying a franchise - there are many things to consider, such as getting financing and building a client base. David facilitates this entire process to ensure the business owner is successful and happy.
