He said, he wants us to learn to ride. Or (directed at me the only one who isn't a complete beginner) improve our riding. He wants us to prove we are interested, and prove we will stay involved. (He hasn't known me long enough to know horses are my life :P)
He called a friend, she's been barrel racing her whole life and she's also taught her daughter who has been barrel racing and doing poles a lot of her life (she's 22) . She agreed to give us lessons for free, on her nice barrel horses. Starting from the ground up! He said once she tells him she thinks we are ready to move up, he'll buy us some good barrel horses.
Now until then, we are going to take lessons, and his sister is giving us two horses to ride too. Mainly to plod around on for awhile abd prove we will feed and all that lol.
Does this sound like a good deal? Lol :)
Without further ado, Cowboy and Dash!
