I guess I should introduce myself, if I'm going to post for help multiple times daily!
I'm a reformed teacher now pursuing certification as a therapeutic riding instructor. It's okay -- I also have a day job. I'm a writer, working on my first horse book.
My horse is Magnum, a ten-year-old Thoroughbred cross. The age and the breed are both guesses, by the way. He's a cool guy. We jump. Well, he jumps and I hold on, but I am about to start lessons again!
Good to be here! This seems like a very helpful community. :)
