I grew up riding with drill teams and doing western pleasure... I've always wanted to get into dressage, but have only done basic with my old drill organization. My AQHA mare's name is Chilla Power... she turned 26 this year and still seems to think that she's about 6 instead. She attempted to escape her pasture a few weeks ago by jumping the fence and found herself picked up by Animal Control... so she still keeps me on my toes. I'm considering buying a weanling later this year since I decided that if I'm going to start from scratch, I might as well do it while I'm still single and without kiddos... I have much more time and money this way ...so I'm looking forward to the experience.
