    I know what you mean. XD My parents understand how much I love it, but I still have to explain everything about riding to them. They're learning.

The pony began trotting and I was slipping off and that was a little scary. But I adjusted myself and insisted that I stay on the pony anyway. I walked the big bay horse around the shoreline and spent most of my time around her. This all only lasted 3 days, after that he was on the run again. We (my sister, my grandfather and I) went to the mainland and stayed with distant cousins.. My mom wasn't too happy when she found out we spent 3 days out of two weeks with our dad. But its okay now that I am older I have come to terms with the fact that he's a loser lol. But anyways that was the only time I was on a horse. Ever since I've always wanted to get back on a horse and REALLY ride without a rope leading me around. I want my chance to hold the reins on my own.
    I'm sorry about your father, but I really hope you can ride soon!

    On my father's side, there were riders including one on the US Equestrian team in the 50's. I went to the dark side when I switched over to only Western ~20 years ago. My wife, 3 kids and their wives are not riders - just me.

    Nope. No one in my family rides. My grandfather is/was a cattle rancher, he calls horses "hay burners."

    I'd love to ride with my cousins, but I don't think any of them want to start. XD I have to learn Western one day! X)

    I am fairly certain that I am the only one in 3 generations that even knows what a horse is.
