Hi - I'm 27 and been riding since I was 5 (with a break for uni).
Currently jumping 1.2m (4ftish) and schooling 1.4m (4ft6) - which is scaring the hell out of me
, but trying to get over that barrier at the moment!
My new horse Bizz is only 15.2hh, but it the most amazing jumper I've ever ridden.
Spent most of my early years loaning ponies from a riding school, then got my first horse at 14. Started competing (show-jumping) other people's horses when I was 16 - but never good enough to make it!
Waited until I got a 'serious' job, before getting my own - and enjoying every second!
