Greetings from California

I just wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. My name is Ian, presently residing in Riverside, near Norco, California. I grew up riding horses, love them, but do not know much about them. I will be a first time horse owner in a few months so I am here to start learning.

My only interest is western pleasure and ranch riding, though I have a great deal of respect and appreciation for the skill and training necessary to ride any style well.

Hey Ian!!
It's nice to meet you :)
I've been riding horses for years, but have recently become a first time horse owner as well.
I've only been on here a couple days... but I've learnt a lot already.
Anyway... it's nice to meet you!

To ride a horse is to ride the sky.

You should meet my brother, Ian the Angry Farmer, maybe you could explain to him that horses can be fun, not just work. Or maybe I could trade? One Ian is the same as the next right?
