Well Im from Abilene and I have been riding just over a year. I've been riding nearly every day for that year so I feel as though I have progressed pretty well.
I grew up here but just never had the chance to ride much growing up. I had the typical kid experience of being lead around on a horse a time or 2 and even going on a trail ride with a horse that plays follow the leader but it was this time last year that I started to actually learn how to ride properly.
Im 29 and I've been married for 7 years. I work in Audiology full time and part time out at the stables we ride and train at. My wife works full time at the stables and part time at a deli. We have discovered a major love for horses and I am starting to get passionate about training in addition to riding.
I've only been on this forums about a week though and have been having fun engaging in some conversations.
I really only ride western. We do a lot of trail riding at the stables. I am interested in trying several different western disciplines. I really want to learn some of the working events like cutting and roping but Im also interested in Western Pleasure, Trail Riding, Reining, etc.
