Allow myself to introduce... myself

A little background on me - I did about a year of lessons when I was a little kid (English riding) and then moved on to other things. Now I'm 36 and I just caught the bug again. I realized that I enjoy being around horses and want to really learn to ride this time.

I'm pretty far from a typical beginner (being a guy, and 36 years old), but so far that hasn't presented a problem. I'm mixing western lessons with trail riding and am trying to get as much time in the saddle as possible. I live in New York City, which makes it a bit tricky (the nearest western barn that I found is about an hour and a half away). Maybe one of these days I'll try riding English again. I'd love to hear suggestions from anyone for nearby places to ride.

No good horse pictures of me to post, but my avitar is me flying a P-51 Mustang called Crazy Horse 2 (my other passion is flying planes) - so hopefully that'll count for something

Howdy form Texas! Never been that far north, so can't help you with finding somewhere to ride.

I'm actually headed down to Austin Texas for work in the next few weeks and hope to do some riding while I'm down there.

Welcome to the forum John from the state across the river!

I don't ride western but believe there are some barns in Sussex county NJ that teach. They may be kind of far for you though. I can have a look around later and see if I have any suggestions for you. I'm all about enablement when it comes to horses.

ETA: Very cool avatar!!

Hi John
Welcome to the forum

Very cool avatar. My dad owns an airplane painting business and a few years ago they painted one of the last P-38's that's still flying. It went to Oshkosh the next weekend with the new "old" paint job. That was the most amazing plane I've ever seen! And now I'm obsessed with WWII planes since.

Hi John!! Welcome to the forum!

Thanks Jake and Dai - I'll check out Sussex (I'm hopefully going to be doing some NJ riding tomorrow if the weather holds)
CLaPorte432 - That's cool - the P-38 is an incredible machine. I've got videos of some of my flying, including the P-51 flight, on my youtube channel by the same username.
Country Woman - it's good to see that I'm not the only adult getting back into riding - it sure feels like that sometimes with all the kids running around the barn
Thanks HorseLovinLady

Thanks all!

Welcome, I am new here too! I grew up on Long Island at an event barn and moved to Maine about 10 years ago to have horses in my backyard, I only have two now, but it's fun! We just spent a week in the city, I miss it!
