Red face Hello from a French Canadian in the UK (Stockport)

Hello everybody,

I have been reading the post on this forum the last few months so decided to register today !

I am 44 year old and only started horse riding since October 2012 and I think I am progressing fairly well (as a mature rider !!).
I can walk, trot and canter. I have a English riding lesson every week (one hour) and have done a few treks.
I think my husband thinks I am a little bit obsessed with my new hobby.
I am originally from Canada (the French bit so my first language is French !) and moved to England in year 2000 to be with my British husband.
In April I am going (and my husband too..he is not a rider !) for a 3 days trek in South of Wales (with Free Rein) I can't wait !
And I have recently started looking at a horse to part loan.

Welcome to the forum! I'm nearly your neighbour, as I'm a Canadian living in Ireland with my Irish husband so I know the feeling of being away from the great white north :)

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Thank you ! Have you been living in Ireland for a long time?
I am quite with the winter here (compared to my sister who is in Canada, she has taken a month of horse riding lessons because it's too cold !)

I left 11 years ago tomorrow I left the day after my 19th birthday to come here for 3 months... and I've ended up married with a mortgage and two kiddies! Funny how life turns out isnt it? I'd still take the -40 and snow over the constant damp miserable rain :) How do you find the UK?
