I am 19, haha, I barley fall into the category. Right now, it's trail ride. I do round pen work on my horse, and groom him everyday I go see him, mess with his feet, things like that. Hopefully start barrels soon.
I also work with my trainers other horses. he lets me handle the colts, fillies, and recently got two new horses, one a paso fino gelding, the other is an unbroke appy.
At my mom's house, we have a 6 month old colt. He is awesome! We have done really awesome gentleing, picking up feet, etc with him. His name is Indy =] I don't know if I will ever be big in rodeos or shows (I want to) but my true heart lies in just taking care of, trail riding, and training horses.
