Smile Hello, my friends.

How refreshing to find a forum all about horses. I'm a first time horse owner at 59. Journey, my QH/Appy mare and I found one another two years ago at Christmas. She is teaching me so much about living in the moment, being real, being her leader...so, so much.

It's nice to find a community of people with like passions. =) I pray I stay healthy and whole for many more years of enjoyment connecting with my Journey. I'm a novice/advanced beginner with some past "experience" of the Wild West type. LOL I've slowed down considerably, and the ground seems so much farther away, but I'm having a blast! Nice to meet ya'll.

Hi Eagle Child (& Journey!)

I'm also new to horse ownership! I acquired my beautiful 9 y.o. Belgian mare at age 41 back in June. She is my first horse. I have very little experience, but in the few months I've had her, we've had a wonderful time.

We are working with a trainer several times per week & on the other days, we just spend quality time together, doing our "homework" between lessons. Luckily, we are at a great barn with great people who've all embraced us with open arms.

It has been one of the best things that's ever happened to me!

Welcome! There are quite a few of us "older" riders. I am 53 and all your comments, especially about the ground, ring true for me, too.
