Red face All the way from california! -wave wave-

Hi everyone!

I'm new to the forum, but not new to horseback riding. I'm seventeen years old, and I ride English and compete in the Hunter/Jumper division. I live up near Los Gatos, California and ride near Cooper Garrod farms, if any of you have heard of it. I don't own any horses, but I lease a beautiful chestnut Arabian named Batman and also ride a disrespectful appaloosa pony named Apache. My trainer says all ponies are mischievous x3.

I've been riding on and off for nine years, and did a little bit of western as well.

Besides horseback riding, I code (CSS) and I am a computer nerd, as well as an avid writer. I love school (I'm in an advanced program that lets me go to college at the same time as high school) and I travel. I'm excited to meet all of you!

Hey! I'm in California (though I'm not familiar with your area) and write HTML and CSS too! Haha. I'm also currently horseless but ride where I work.

Anyways, welcome!

Hey, another Californian, but I am way north of you. Welcome to the forum, do you have pics of Batman and Apache? We would all love to see.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.
