I am Olivia... or Livvie... I have been riding for 5 years, 6 years in July!! I have ridden more than 20 different horses... I stopped riding which is really upsetting but my knee has been killing me and I can't keep my ankles down due to major pain!! I taught a Tennesse Walker horse how to jump... that is when I realized that I wanted to train horses and start my own rescue barn.
I went to my first show last October and receieved 2nd place... it was so not a formal show because the formal show we were going to was cancelled and we found a quick replacement. My trainer tells me I have a 'gift' I can jump on any horse and they listen. She said they like the way I ride them, I am gentle yet stern... I guess you could say riding is like second nature to me... :P
I miss riding... the new trainer that my barn hired well she made me cry... like I said I have been riding for almost six years and the new trainer was acting as if it was the first time I had jumped on a horse... SO that ticked me a little but it made me realize I was ready to move on and get better.
JUMPING is my life.... I love it... that is what I want to do is just jump and jump and jump!!! I love the equitation aspect of english but jumping just kinda speaks to me...
yeah I haven't ridden since I think march or before... its horrib;e!!! I still havent gone to the doctor... ugh./.. I am going to ride as soon I as I can... I am changing barns and I can't wait to ge back in the saddle
