Hello from Okotoks, Alberta

Hi

I am a horse lover and what better place to be.... Looking to make some new friends and hopefully find some good tips and hear some amazing adventures.

I am 47 yrs old and my goal is to look at purchasing a horse next spring... I am currently trying to find a facility close by that I can possibly lease a horse and start taking lessons for the fall... Sadly I have not been riding much at all this year except for a couple of weeks ago where a dear friend allowed me to ride his horse.... But I am researching and hopefully will find a place that I can feel very comfortable with and hopefully feel like part of a big family.... I have taken lessons in the past and like the western style and have enjoyed the pole bending, barrel racing events but know I still have a lot to learn.... I am also starting to get into photographing horses and have been trying to find anyone that is willing to allow me to practise taking pictures of their horses as enjoy being around them anyway I can

Hopefully I can make some friends here and enjoy sharing adventures years to come.

Michele
