Hello Hello! (oregonian here!)

Hi everyone! I do not own my own horse (YET!) at the moment, but have been consistently riding for about 4 months now and taking lessons for the past 3 weeks. Just thought I would say hello and welcome to all the other newbies!

disciplines? Hehe i'm still learning a lot of stuff. Basically, I'm able to stay on during a trot I'de like to think I have pretty good balance (started out bareback). I've been riding my sis-in-law's horse Mistique (I think she's part paint). I AM ADDICTED! And can't wait to learn more. I will prob have some questions on here soon :)

Here's the crew:





Thanks for the welcoming![/img]

ha yes she has almost 20! Most are mini's though. Cooper is the black draft horse, mystique is the paint, and that little one is mamma pony hehe :)

I'm so excited to get my own someday....im thinking next spring! Everything is such a new experience. I'm still trying to figure out how to 'control the horses feet' with my body movements. It's quite difficult for a beginner :)

Thanks for chatting! Is that your baby in the avatar pic? How sweet :)

Yeah, she's the first one I've bought and owned all by myself. I've had horses with my parents since I was 3 and riding ever since! Bonny is really sweet. I rescued her, she was abused, and now I can do anything with her.

I have another 4 year old mare and a 6 month old baby!

YAY! HIGH FIVE FOR HORSE ADDICTS :)

Wow she's beautiful! Love the color...what's her name??

Well since im still learning, im taking to western, but really do not have any special 'technique'. I personally am in love with riding bareback! I am going to try and get the basics down, and then try some new stuff. I would really like to learn to barrel and jump, but I really need to get the basics. I can't seem to keep my feet in the sturrups during a fast trot.

How about you?? What's your preferance?
