Brit living in Maine USA

Hi my name is Peter and I live in the state of Maine USA. I am a British guy who has moved to the USA in 2008 and been here since. (so Far)

Anyhow I have been riding since 1994. I started off at a private yard of show jumpers. Since then I been to College in horse studies but then joined the British Army (King's Troop RHA) I been in the army for seven and half years and enjoyed most of it but left as the army was not changing for the good.

Since I have been to the US I have had a hard time to find easy access to horses and a good barn to ride and get to know people. Sadly living in Maine a lot of barns are far away and with the gas prices... yer not happening.

Though I have been making friends with a couple who does endurance and been having a blast so far and longest point is 20 miles. Next week I be riding 30 miles and I may take this new sport on. I want to get into Eventing hard but until I can deal with thing on day to day life I keep on riding everyone else horses.

PS
I will warn you I tend not to be good on grammar and spelling. So don't be hard on me. Dyslexia is my enemy.

Anyhow here my few pics

Yes I need to get some more recent pics asap :(

Welcome, Peter.

I am glad to hear that you are reaching out to meet other horse peoples. From the looks of that Arab, you've met some quality equine friends.

I spell very well and have very good grammar, but am a terrible typist, so make lots of mistakes and am too lazy to corret them . So, welcome.

Welcome to the forum and the neighborhood ( Northeast ) I am in the state beside you good ol NH. As you get out and meet new people through trail riding, the more farms you will see that are out there. Alot of farms in Maine don't really advertise much. I hope you got to see alot of areas in Maine, its a beautiful state to live in.
