Hi, guys!... & ladies! :3 This is my first thread! Aiiiee, I'm proud of myself. ^.^ Anyways, to the point.. * Drumroll*.. First of all, I'm Makayla, and I come form North Carolina, In the United States. I've rode since I was about 8, so about 5 years, as I just turned 13! I started riding at a Therapeutic riding barn for kids with Autism, and other mentally challenged.. (don't mean to offend anyone! I apologize if taken the wrong way..) I love riding there! The owner, and co-manager are amazing with kids, and natural with horses. I met my best friend, Crissy, there about 3 summers ago. I've taken to many horses, such as everyday school ponies, to horses never worked under saddle. Anyways, I've fallen in love with so many of them. I've leased a AQH named Beauty last year, for the summer.<3 I loved her.<3 I've been studying equine medicine, and training, and such for about 2 years.. I'd like to know YOUR views! Feel free to post about income, responsibilities of riding, career pros & cons, etc. Thanks you guys! God bless you all!
