1) How old were you when you started? Very young, too young to have memory of it. I grew up in a horse family, my mom is a retired trainer.

2) How long have you been riding? 30+ years

3) How long before your first show? Leadline when I was teeny tiny, on my own I showed my first small fry season at 6.

4) How long before you started leasing/owning? Horses came before me. The first one I paid for myself, I was just shy of 15. Raised and owned dozens since.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

1) How old were you when you started? 8 years old.
2) How long have you been riding? Around 8-9 years. But only 2 of those years count, I'm still a beginner.

1) How old were you when you started? 9

2) How long have you been riding? Rode until I was 18, had to stop because life got in the way. Started back up when I was 26, and been back at it for almost two years.

3) How long before your first show? Oh, a few months maybe? I did walk/trot equitation. :)

4) How long before you started leasing/owning? I was never able to do either until an adult. I have leased for a year and a half and fell in love with one of my lease horses. I don't plan on owning until one of two things happens: Owner decides to sell, or I fall in love with another horse that makes it worth giving up that first one.
