Then and Now

Show me pictures of how you used to ride when you were younger or first started riding and then one of today. I'll start. The grey's name was Norman, I was 10 when I was riding there and just starting to learn what to do. Then the chestnut is Ziggy and unfortunately it's one of the only 'more recent' pictures I have of me riding I was probably about 16-17 in it (22 now)..no one goes with me to the barn to take pictures anymore Major difference I notice is I learned how to keep my heel DOWN...amazing what breaking in a stiff pair of boots while riding will do to your leg position lol

The first picture is of when I first changed barns to start Dressage when I was around eight - nine. The second is a more recent picture of my riding my own mare, preparing her for her first Dressage test.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Then: About 2 years old (oldest picture of me riding horse that I could find) on our (now) 28 year old gelding, Billy.
He is retired now. And I've been riding horses since before I could crawl.

Now (sorta): This is the most recent picture I can find of me riding one of our horses (holy I need to get out and take new pictures! lol).
Now I'm 20 years old and this is my 7 year old gelding, Adiel (then he was 4 and I was just starting his training).


Just to throw in an english picture too ;)
Again, I'm 20 and Billy (same horse as the first picture, in this one he is now 26) my retired show horse. This is from my last show on him.
