Thanks! Zee and I are both being taken out of retirement! I rode til I was about 20, but took 10 years off til last year when I started riding again. Zee hasn't been ridden much in the last 5-6 years, so we need a bit of practice to start getting the hang of things again. I take a 30 minute private lesson over fences once a week, and try to join a 1 hr group lesson on flatwork / dressage once a week. I'm just so happy with his progress. I know we both have a lot to improve on, but he's moving forward, starting to carry himself and balance better, and his stamina and flexibility have increased dramatically. I'm happy that my lower half is getting better! If I could sit up and turn my elbows in, I'd be happy!
I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.
