Just thought I'd stop in and introduce myself. My name is ryssa1229 (as I'm sure you can see) and I have been riding for over 9 years now at a great english barn.It does hunters,jumpers,equitation,etc. here in NY,and I'm currently working to get back to my old riding habits which I lost after a bad fall a few years ago.Nope I wasn't hurt,just shaken up if you were wondering. =] I don't have a horse of my own (blah) but I do ride a large pony named Snickers (my icon) who is truly an angel.We've been together for 2 years now after he was rescued from a "sinkhole in the ground" and brought to us to be a lesson horse.You'd think after being treated badly he'd hate people and be pretty flighty,but he has the biggest and sweetest personality I have ever encountered in a horse.He LOVES affection and to be a drool monster,he's ruined a ton of my shirts after grabbing onto them whenever I give him some attention XD Sure he can be tough,but we're learning together and he's helped me become more assertive and how rewarding it is to fight for what you want and get it after all your hard work.I found this site thanks to Google and couldn't wait to join. =]
And that is the end of my intro =P So hello to you all!
