I have a feeling too that I will fall in love Caroline, going to have to watch that I don't go in with "beer goggles". I used to ride jumpers for a friend as I could show green\rookie classes on the h/j circuit but they were all tb's or tb crosses. Never ridden any european breeds. Did ride a Lippizan once on vacation, my one and only time in a dressage saddle :) I will be finding a barn and taking some dressage lessons for myself if she is a fit for me. Her owner is going to college and approached my mom and asked if I might be interested as she is looking for a home to pamper her for the long haul. I have a history of lifers. I have 3 now that I've had for 20+ years.
While training is my main income source I do quite a bit of teaching. My mom is a 4-H youth agent so I'm very involved with our local 4-H kids & a handful that show AQHA/APHA. I have 9 students right now. I do WP, show trail, western riding, reining, hunt seat, some cow work, contesting & showmanship is my forte. I also judge and put on a few horsemanship & showmanship clinics each year. While I love riding\training it's almost more rewarding seeing little ones soak up knowledge and succeed!
