Need a Rider?

I am 15 years old and have been riding and training horses since before I could walk. I have adealt mostly with Quarter horses and have ridden in all disciplines. And I'm wondering, do you have a horse that's just sitting in your pasture? Do you have a horse who needs excercised? Or just a horse who needs some simple training or brushing up? Only in the Topeka, Kansas area but please contact me :)

Ethan, I'd suggest you to also post ad on craigslist and in feed/tack stores in your area. :)

No offense, seriously, but I watched your video on the "Lame?" thread, and think you would be better suited to see if you could work as barn help and apprentice with a professional trainer, while you learn the ropes and nuances of riding. Experience, unfortunately, does not necessarily equal knowledge, and while you are probably skilled at sticking in the saddle, you are not at a point in your career where I for one would allow you to ride more horses. If you can find a good place that provides supervision and pointers, I think you would improve greatly. That's the best way to learn....we all start somewhere, and I was about your age when I started doing much the same as I'm advising you....and yes, it did, in the end, lead to a good, paying, training gig, once I had amassed the knowledge and skills I needed.
