In my area there is the Backwoodsman riding group (some thing like that )and its a bunch of old ladies who go on trail rides in the summer. But they don't know how to ride and can't control their horses.
I know their are kids around my age (20) who ride in my area or at least have horses. I also know that their are other barns in my small town. Its just like everyone is in their tiny groups or keep to them selves and you never hear about horses or barns.
Well at my barn theirs really just one other girl (16) who rides when she's not doing sports, otherwise we never ever see her unless she's bringing people to the barn to show off her poor depressed dirty horse.... ANYWAYS (strong feelings about that) ^_^
I want to RIDE with people and not a bunch of 50+ year olds, I just don't think I would fit into that group ;) so how do I start to bring everyone together. My barn is starting a 4-h group but its with young kids...
