Sorry it's so small. It's a scan of a standard 3"x5" picture and then Photobucket decided it needed to be tiny. This is my first time on this horse (13yo Peruvian paso gelding who was a retired stud and had been gelded less than 6 months prior to this ride), first time on this trail, first time in anything other than a western saddle (authentic Peruvian saddle...soooooooo comfy). This was also my maybe tenth ride ever.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

Might as well make my first post about when I was first learning to ride. I'm going to guess I was around 7-8 when these pictures were taken...

The horse's name was Horse (lesson horse).

Sidebar: I rode until I was around 14, now I'm 27 and picking it back up again.

I love that saddle pad on Horse! Wish I could find one like that in red and black.

not very embarrassing but not quite graceful. Wow... i can't believe it's been almost 5 years since that picture was taken! I've been riding for sooo long, and I haven't gotten very far. Hopefully with this change of barns soon...

Oh my I'd have to go dig through the photo albums for the real early beginner pictures. Here's a couple from high school though:

That's my friend's App that she let me borrow for the county 4-H show. Don't you just love my Good-Will blazer

Dear me that vest is awful! Another one of my friend's horses. He was an absolute saint... still is actually. Last I heard he's about to turn 30!
