glad to meet you all from sunny devon

Hi everyone, I'm looking forward to getting to know you.
I have owned horses for more years than I'm prepared to admit, and although I don't have my own at the moment I ride a great variety of other peoples'.
I've done all the stuff, showing, jumping, dressage (at a local level only) etc but now I enjoy nothing better than a canter over the moors in all weathers (we get some real weather here), perhaps I am at last settling down (or entering my dotage).

That's really nice to get a proper greeting, thanks.
Just spent the weekend being nearly drowned on Dartmoor, riding in severe weather for 4 hours (we had proper severe weather warnings.) The roads were like rivers and the rain was like someone pouring a huge bucket of water out of the sky all the time, at a 45o angle. Why people actually pay to ride in those conditions beats me!
Roll on summer I say, can't wait for flies, burning sun etc

Hello Chicken (little? )
I am already IN my dotage, and loving it, too! I like your explanation of what sort of riding you do. If I was there, you and I would go out across the moors , cantering and laughing and consider ourselves the luckiest people around. Every time I go out for a ride in our woods, it's an adventure and I am hardly ever dissatisfied with my lot. (not til I get home and the kids and hubby are meeting me at the door with growling stomachs)

Welcome to the forum. I Do know the show Bonanza. It was popular when I was a kid. I loved little Joe's horse, the pinto. I don't know the other show.
Are you a rider?
