    Hello from the bay area, CA!

    Hi!
    I returned to riding after a very long hiatus. I had a horse when I was 14 and hadn't gone riding since I was about 16 (I'm 32 now).

    After going to Kauai and riding with the woman who owned the property (and horses) where I was staying, I fell back in love. Right when I got home from my trip I made an appointment to start lessons (and use a gift certificate my bf gave me) and the rest is history. So to speak, at least... There have been some ups and downs and some scary and/or frustrating moments but all the good outweighs everything else. I now lease a horse and continue to take lessons.
    I am now finding out how therapeutic riding is! Itís so challenging and in such an interesting way. I never knew how spiritually fulfilling it could be! I can definitely feel myself changing as the weeks go by. Learning new skills, becoming more confident and learning to communicate more effectively all around.
    Iím so happy that this community exists! Glad to meet you all!
