Hello from England!

Hello everyone, just thought I'd come by and introduce myself.
I'm (gulp!) over 50 now and only started riding a few years ago - I'm quite nervous and not very good, but I love every moment spent in the saddle and am enjoying the never ending learning journey.

I am coming to the end of a six month loan of a beautiful Camargue x thoroughbred called Papillon. He is on livery at a superb yard that have been so supportive. Sadly, I can't afford to continue loaning him at the moment but hope to start again sometime.

I'm also married with a sixteen year old son - the best blues guitarist this side of the delta! - who I'm immensely proud of. I have two Labradors, a black one and a yellow one, and have recently achieved my dream of becoming a published writer - with several magazine articles under my belt and aspirations to write fiction too.

Oh dear - I've rambled on - see, told you I like writing!

I'm glad you discovered the amazing world of horses. They are certainly addicting.

I can speak for myself, and the other members, in saying that we would love to see some photos of Papillon! :)
