    I am longing to visit Scotland and trace my great-great grandfather’s history. I dearly want to ride when I am over seas however I do have a need to find a stable that understands the need for additional help. I have a congenital back problem that eventually broke my back.. (well my actions broke it) however the issue had caused stress fractures.. i am awaiting my 5th back surgery. I have been riding since I was a child and rode horses all over America on the racetracks and some rodeos. I do well in the flat saddle as I don’t suppose there are many western saddles in Scotland. (Smile)
    I plan to visit next year with my son who will be 12, and my brother as he has been to Scotland many times.
    Warm regards,
