I just came across this forum a couple of weeks ago and have been reading through lots of posts, so I figured I'd take a second and introduce myself :)
I started riding when I was a little girl, although I had to give it up when I started university because I couldn't afford it anymore. That was 8 years ago, and I just got back into lessons this spring! I also volunteer at a therapeutic riding center for children with disabilities once a week.
I don't own or lease a horse, sadly, because I'm currently completing the chartered accounting program which is very time-demanding, but hopefully someday! I've been learning lots from this forum though, so thanks everyone!
