Hello from Washington

Hey ya'll! My name is Michelle and I just joined up! I JUST recently started riding again after about 6 years. I feel like a complete beginner again! My husband recently left for Iraq and I needed some sort of personal therapy...so I am leasing a beautiful paint from a local stable. I am very excited but nervous at the same time!!

Hi Michelle, and welcome to the Horseforum. :)

I too had a break of about 7 years, horses tend to never leave your system do they?
I got back in the saddle just over 2 years ago, I now have three and a fourth due in March.

We'd love to see some pictures if you have some?

Thank you!!

I was out at the barn from 5:00 to 9:00 pm after work today!! We are really starting to bond =)

The first couple of rides were really testy. I think on both our parts.

But we both seem very comfortable with eachother now =)

Thank you =) definitely can't stay away!! And now that my hubby is deployed I need em more than ever!
I've figured out that when I am riding is really the only time I don't worry about him.
Crazy how therapeutic it can be.
