Hello from Calgary, Canada!

Hi everybody,

I'm Anja and I live in Calgary since last summer. I'm originaly from Switzerland. But my husband and I don't like it so much there. That's why we moved to Canada!
I was always dreaming of learning how to ride. But all I did was sitting on a horse a few times... I never had any riding lessons.
Now I'm 23 years old and I have to do something about that. I wanna learn how to ride. Since I live in Calgary I would like to learn western riding. And I really am a step closer to my dream. I have my first riding lesson tomorrow (Monday)! I'm so excited about that. I can't wait!

I love this Forum very much. It is so intresting to read all your postings.


PS: Sorry about my english. I'm still not that good.

My first lesson was great! I love it! My next lesson is already tomorrow. I can't wait longer. Maybe I should post some pictures from my first lesson and write more later. My husband came with me and took some pictures.

We are in Canada since August 2008. Were do you live in Alberta?

Weclome ma'am and enjoy the ride

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
