I am back in the saddle, at least for a little while. I'm also keeping up with the forum after a long absence. I help out and often take lessons at a ranch, also learning a completely different riding discipline (western) because it is more familiar to my instructor/owner of the ranch.
I'm a beginner either way and take quite a bit of time to learn anything; but my generic short term goals concerning horseback riding include getting into gait transitions (trot, canter; walk to canter, etc.) long term- I'd love to try reigning and dressage, also to experience jumping. No competitions. No shows. (At least not yet.)
Anyone else have similar short/long term goals? How are you working on them?~
