I am 24 and I guess you could say I have been riding all my life. I started out as soon as I was able to hold my head up by myself. That is when my Dad started putting me in the saddle in front of him while he warmed up his show horses. I got my own mini-burro when I was 2 and got my own QH when I was 4. Started training my own horses when I was 14. I have had lots of scrapes, bumps, bruises, and broken bones to add to my education. Luckily though, none of them kept me off a horse for more than a couple of days.
