    Hello from New England

    I'm new to this forum and I joined after aimlessly wandering the internet out of boredom, but I am very passionate about horses and I am a dedicated rider.

    My name is Michael and I am 17. I have been riding for 8 months (exactly a year on November 3 - don't ask how I know that lol). In that time I began with no previous knowledge or experience with horses and currently I am an accomplished rider. I have ridden level 1 dressage (working on level 2) and I have done some show jumping as well (2 and 3 feet fences currently). I have not done any cross country yet, but I will soon - as well as eventing. I do not own a horse, but I have been leasing for the past 6 months, and I love every minute of it.

    I ride a TB gelding (with some dutch warm blood to boot). His name is Captain, and he stands at almost 17 hands - I'll post pictures up soon.

    As a guy, I would like to address that I am not gay - as the stereotype goes. I play volleyball for my high school and basketball for the Salem Boys and Girls Club. I hope that I can find some other male riders on this forum because it is a bit lonely talking to only girls at my barn. And besides, I have yet to meet any male riders my age.

    Thanks mell!! I very much appreciate it

    Yeah, since I started at an older age, my instructor could teach me more in a shorter amount of time. And I was able to lease pretty early too. I'm at the barn quite often too, and that helps :)

    Salem, NH?? That's where I am right now! I keep my horse over at my father's place in MA. I was going through the community and it seems like everyone's from New Zealand or Texas and then I saw a random Salem NH, so I just had to say Hi
