Smile Hello! New here!

Hello! I am new to the forum but not new to horses, I have been browsing different websites for different things and this one comes up quite a lot so I decided to join! To tell you a bit about myself I am 22 year old third year student but taking time off to work and show my horse. I show mainly jumpers but in the past it was all hunters and this year I will do some 1.20 jumpers as well as jumper medals. I have 2 horses, one is Mike who is a 13.2h pony who is on a full lease, I was in a horrible horrible life threatening horse accident when I was 15 and without him I never would have ridden again and would not be where I am today. I also have the new love of my life Stella who is a 16.2 Hanoverian mare with endless talent and personality. I bought her last June to be my “first real jumper” who will help bring me along in the bigger classes.

I have read many posts on here and can't wait to jump into it and hopefully be able to help out with some questions in other posts and you guys can help me out with some of my question!

An English horse has grace, a Western horse has pleasure, but My horse has it ALL!

Welcome to the forum!
