Did a very quick google search

Horse Lessons in Texarkana Texas

And

Texarkana
Huggins Farms; call: 903-832-4445
Route 9 Box 662, Texarkana, TX 75501; located in or by Bowie county

I don't know if that's helpful but what you could do is ask local horse feed stores or advertise in them.

OP - try contacting your local extension office -ask for the contact info of the local 4-H horse/pony leader. They will be a gold mine of information for all the "horsey" set in your area - may well point you in the direction of someone who can help you and your horse start building a better foundation to move forward on. You may even find someone who can help you overcome the transportation complication by working with you on-site (less common, but does happen). Or you might consider taking some lessons at a barn without having to take your horse along - learning on one of their BTDT lesson horses will give you a skill set (and confidence ) that you can carry home with you to transfer to your work with your own horse.

I did this OP (which is really sound advice) with my greenie and it worked really well. It was only once a week too.

Djcig..lots of good advice given to you. You should try one or two lessons.
Do you have an arena ? At first just go at a walk until both you and the horse move together. Stay light on the horses mouth , use the pull and release methods . Try to relax and enjoy the horse.

Where do you buy your horse feed and supplies from? Put up a wanted poster and see if you get any bites. You might just find someone who is an experienced rider but doesn't have a horse at the moment. But, please do get references before just setting in with a non-professional. From a previous barn, or trainer, not just friends.

I think I may have found someone that may help me. He is in the Texarkana area and seems to understand my situation. Im praying that this time it will work for me. I want to meet new people and befriend others that are involved in horses, I feel kind of left out and strange by asking any horse person if I can join them without even knowing them. Thanks for your help and time for talking to me. Hopefully we can talk again.

I posted an ad on Craigslist for help and meet a gentleman on the phone and suppose to meet Monday. He has worked around horses his whole life and works with reining and cutting horses along with helping others to ride. Knock on wood, hopefully this is a second chance at riding again. I buy my horse feed at a local feed store in town known as Miller-Bowie. Thanks for helping me and talking with me. Hopefully we can talk about other things and help each other out.
