Greetings from Virginia!

Hi, my name is Tina and I'm from Chincoteague Island. I'm 17 years old and i've been riding since i was 13. I don't own a horse but i ride a 20 year old thoroughbred gelding named sterling. I prefer to ride english but also ride western sometimes. I am graduating this year and hope to go to school to major in Equine Studies, hopefully Virginia Tech. I want to own and operate a lesson/training facility in the future. I've never competed before but may start this year, i want to do hunter/jumper. I hope to make alot of new friends here!

oh, yeah, and i'm also a refugee!
