Hi there! I'm a new rider and I just signed up for the forums, so I thought I'd post an introduction. I'm 32 and started taking English lessons again. I took a few (maybe five? Tops) lessons and had some uninstructed riding time 13 or 14 years ago. I don't know why I kept putting it off -- I think I was afraid of failure, but now I'm so glad I started back.
I've had three lessons so far, once a week private instruction. I'd love to do jumping someday; that's my primary goal. I wish I could afford more riding time but it's not in the budget right now. I'm doing OK but I have a lot to learn. Just started working on posting the trot last week.
