I am going to be a jockey!

About Me

Delila on Chance     I have had a love affair with horses and literature for as long as I can remember. I would describe myself as an optimistic, determined, literately enriched cowgirl. In my wildest dreams I want to become a jockey, however; in my realistic dreams I want to become a writer, so this summer I enrolled in community college like any recent High school Grad should. John Steinbeck once said, “The profession of book writing makes horse racing seem like a solid, stable business.” This, I suppose, is a challenge for my determined nature and optimism to stand and defend my dreams, but only time will tell if Steinbeck is acurate.

    I have ridden horses in local show jumping competitions since I was young and spend most of my time training my two horses, hanging out with my fiance, and writing in my journal. Recently, I made the switch from lined paper to cyberspace because a door was opened for me to fulfill my wildest dreams!  Surely this sovereign opportunity to ride beautiful race horses will spew onto my pages in a way that will entertain readers in this virtual community.

     I have decided to change people’s names to protect feelings and identity. Please write comments, criticism, and cognizance at the bottom of any/all pages.

  2. Hi There,

    Can’t believe your the little cousin who used to visit us in Ohio from time to time. Your writings are extraordinary and I am loving reading them. I am amazed by your courage and the love you give to others and especially to horses. They were my favorite animal growing up and I never got to be around them. You are lucky to have that wonderful passion in your life.

    It would be great to see you again – until then I’ll keep up to date with you through your writings! Love, Cousin Lisa

  7. Your blog was recommended to me by Wendy at the Literary Horse. So happy she recommended it. I’m (hopefully) on my way to becoming an exercise rider, and this blog is a wonderful read.
