I just bought my 8 year old TB mare 2 weeks ago. Her last race was on Feb 2nd, 2010. Prior to her I did a lot of ground work for a lady several years ago and ended up buying a 2 year old Appy from her and worked for her to pay her off, I moved due to a job opp and was forced to sell her. I didn't do much riding. I moved back to the country now and I'm really excited to get back into things. She's a great horse and I'm looking to work with her enough to go to some shows next year.
