My name is Marcie. :) Super original sn I know lol.
I have loved horses since I was a kid, collected Breyers and as an adult enjoy playing with horses on the sims 3. Lame but sometimes you take what you can get. I'm 29 now and had a pretty crappy job up until last year. Then last month I decided to heck with it, I'm taking lessons! I can afford it now so why not!
I took them once about oh..15 years ago now? I was learning dressage but never got past a trot and only did it for a few months. (Nothing I learned then is helping me now lol. It was way too long ago.) So now I'm into month two of riding lessons. I go once or twice a week and love my coach! I learn at her place and have private lessons. She works training horses during the day and does shows on her other horses. On the days it's too hot to ride I can still go over and help wash the horses off with a hose. And squeegee them! XD (I had no idea that such a thing as a horse squeegee even existed! I still think it's the funniest thing in the world!)
Since I want to own a horse one day she's teaching me everything including bridling, saddling, lunging and manners. I love every moment of it! Even when I'm sweating my butt off and my legs are jello lol. My goal is to be able to trail ride competently and do very small jumps if necessary.
So hello to you all!
