my name is Tina and i've been lurking on here the last few days and realized I should introduce myself!
I am 22 years old, started riding english when I was 12 though it has been an on-and-off thing since then. Ride for a few years, forced by circumstance to take a year or two off, and then back on. I will be ending a two year hiatus on sunday! I am so excited. I took time off when I moved to NYC because lessons here are expensive and I'm used to small local barns with a close horse community, something i've been unable to find/afford here. But now I'm in a better place with money and there's a big equestrian center nearby and I'm ready to get back in the saddle where I belong! I'm just nervous, i've been reading posts here about trainers and i'm worried my new trainer will be one whose just in it for the money and doesn't (gently) push me to be better.
Anyone here from New York?
