39! I hit the big 40 at the end of the year and it is something I had always wanted to do so I decided that who not start now. I'm in lessons now and loving every minute of it.

I've always been horse crazy.
I'd get "pony" rides out at my aunt's QH farm when I was a tiny little kid - probably around the age of 4, but I never started really riding until about 13 or 14? I honestly don't even remember! LOL. And even then it was just every few months. After I graduated HS, I cleaned stalls on the weekends in exchange for riding. That's where I met Jake. Now 2 years later and I own him, and I made a lot of lifelong friends from that barn. I think of them as family.
