geting in to horses.

hiya I got in to horses about 33 years ago now and I met a girl called christine and it was love at first sight.
She had a cob called john and he was about 16.3 hh rone.
To save me retypeing it all again some one asked me the same question so I have ritten the string in the driveing forum under carts stored for 14 years.
That's how I got in to horses.

My first experience with horses was at a barn while my sister was taking riding lessons. I was 5-6 and too scared to actually get on a horse, but I really liked the animals. Now I'm not too scared. Haha.

Now you are (or you're) being disrespectful.
This is not a grammar thread.

there may not be a bunch of cute young (and very itchy) guys riding around in their undies, but the cold does tend to perk up the horses!

That depends first and foremost on your commitment to practicing, to listening and a no nonsense getting it right attitude (not to say, no fun, but you have to commit). And natural ability.

I've seen people who will argue with an instructor. What the point of that is, is beyond me. If you pay someone to teach you how to improve your proficiency, then you should be listening and working it.
