Wink Newbie anyone?

Is anyone new to owning/riding horses?? I just recently got my first horse. She is a 15 yr old Appaloosa named Allie. I've been looking at posts on here and I feel very alone . . . I feel like im the only new rider/owner on here! Anyone else new??? If so how new and how did you learn about riding/owning your horse? Are you learning as you go, or is someone teaching you? I do have some experience. I've ridden on and off through my life. But never consistantly.

Lol! Don't feel bad! I was very new owner about 4 years ago. With 2 unhandled yearlings. And I still feel like a new owner!

There are bunch of threads all around the forum started "we just bought a horse" or "I just started taking lessons" etc. So there are plenty of new owners/riders out here!

I live in London. I ride at a school and don't have my own horse so it changes from week to week :)

:) I have had alot of help so far but when things just started going well with my new horse, I got news that I can only do a little riding now as I am going to be a mummy in may ....which is great news, but not on the riding side of things :(
Have you got any pictures of your horse????
