I ride western, nothing really specific. I used to dabble in barrel racing and I'd do some pleasure classes...I'm trying to get my mare in shape so that maybe we can do some pleasure classes in the not too far future. I love trail riding though, and I want to do endurance riding again but I need a horse and the time to do it. I used to do that a lot when I was younger and loved it.
I've always been fascinated with anything English, especially jumping and dressage. It is all just over my head and I have never known anyone who rode English that could educate me on anything. There wasn't internet to rely on like there is now, so I was clueless. Many years ago, when I was right out of high school, I bought myself an all purpose saddle and English riding gear and I told myself I was going to get some books and learn how to do some stuff. I think I used my stuff all of 5 times before it was stolen. I kept it in the trunk of my parents car and the car was stolen, they found the car but the only thing left of my English dreams was a saddle pad. I still have it, and it's been 20+ years, lol. I never bought another saddle and I just kinda let the dream go, decided it wasn't meant to be. But oh, I love it!
