I am 20 and just starting to get into riding seriously. I always had a desire to as a kid but never really the means, so now that I am married and going to college I found a really great barn to take lessons at. I started about 5 months ago, learning english style. I just jumped my first full course last Friday, most jumps around 2'6". I'm sure I looked horrible, but I'm working on it!

Yes ma'am..She's either a mix or full pitbull...I love her to pieces and she's been the best dog I could ask for. You now must post pictures of yours. They are awesome dogs.

19 going on 20 this September.

Got my horse a year and 3 months ago. Been riding on and off for 9 years.. but only consider 2 of those years to have lessons that actually taught me something. My horse was a rescue, very very very green and scared of everything. Now he has much more confidence, knows his gaits, and is a respectable member of the horse community. Did it all myself via horse riding lessons and research. I am not a professional horse trainer in any way, but I do know my way around the starting gate.

I've worked at a therapeutic riding center and learned lots and loved every minute of it. I hope to do some volunteer work and earn a second degree in the horse field.

I'm 29. Will be 30 in October.

I have loved horses since I was three, but never had the opportunity to be around them because my dad is severely allergic and my parents thought that horses were "just a phase" that I'd outgrow. Yeah, 26 years later and my love is still going strong. That's one hell of a long phase.

I have one beastly, my Percheron/paint cross gelding, Aires. He's my baby and my pride and joy...even if he sometimes decides to actually act his age (coming 3 in May).

My two other prides and joys are my soon-to-be 8-year-old son, Keanu Douglas, and my almost 5-year-old aussie/st bernard mix, Cash.

Yes, my dog is a bit confused. He thinks the cows are to play with and kids are to herd. He also HATES water with a passion (I have seen him walk around puddles on the ground before), but LOVES snow and will nap in it.

TripR3, I just switched from western to English about 3 months ago. The first course you do feels awesome, doesn't it?! :)

DrumRunner, I'm on my iPad right now so I'll post pictures when I get back on my computer tomorrow :) orrrr... Here's a link to another thread of mine: Introducing Oliver :) (pic heavy)

Rob, sounds like you've had a good and eventful horse-filled life ;)

Skyseternalangel, I've helped special needs kids ride horses since my mom is a physical therapist and works with them. Its so rewarding!
